Worldwide Flight Services has future-proofed its growing handling operation at Brussels airport with the opening of a modern 250,000 tonne capacity cargo terminal, designed to optimise speed and deliver self-service and real-time information for airlines and freight forwarders.

The new 25,000 square metre facility is in addition to WFS’ 11,000 tonne warehouse and office operation at the airport which opened in the Brucargo West development zone in 2019.

Marc Claesen, Senior Vice President Commercial EMEAA at WFS, said that the company’s latest investment is inspired by Brussels airport’s commitment to air cargo growth.

“Brussels airport and its cargo community are very progressive. WFS is taking the leading role in providing the market with a product and digital tools which meet the requirements of modern day cargo handling, and which gives us the capacity to grow. We believe more airlines will choose to partner with us.”

WFS’ clients in Brussels include Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, IAG Group and United Airlines.
