La Compagnie has appointed Worldwide Flight Services to support its first-ever venture into the air cargo market.
It has awarded WFS a three year contract to handle cargo onboard its Airbus A321LR services from Paris Orly to New York’s Newark International airport, which will increase from the current four flights a week to seven in September.
This is the first time La Compagnie has carried cargo onboard its business passenger services. Depending on the number of passengers, each flight is expected to carry up to 3.5 tonnes between France and the US.
Damien Paries, VP Ground Operations, La Compagnie-Dreamjet, said: “As a global leader in air cargo handling, WFS is the perfect partner to support the launch of our first-ever freight service. We are confident they will provide the same high quality experience for our cargo customers as our passengers enjoy when they choose La Compagnie.”
WFS also holds ground handling contracts with La Compagnie in Newark for its passenger and ramp services to Paris Orly and Nice.
