Worldwide Flight Services is future-proofing its cargo handling operations at Copenhagen airport with the lease of a further facility to support the growing volumes of its airline and freight forwarding customers.

From September 1 WFS will commence operations in an additional 4,700 square metre freight centre at the airport, increasing its total footprint in Copenhagen to more than 13,900 square metres. Located next to WFS’ existing premises, it will increase WFS’ capacity to provide the highest levels of safety, security and service for its some 70 customers, including 23 airlines with online flights to the Danish capital.

This latest development is a part of an ongoing investment programme by WFS in Copenhagen, where it is also due to open a new pharmaceutical facility for sensitive, temperature-controlled shipments in the coming weeks. Providing specialist, compliant handling for customers’ pharma cargoes has been one of WFS’ biggest growth areas in Denmark.

The additional building incorporates six ramps and cargo doors, along with two cool rooms as well as dedicated rooms for AVi and RRY storage; it also benefits from direct airside access.
