Continental Airlines is extending its business partnership with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in North America with the awarding on a new contract in Honolulu.
The agreement, effective July 17th, will see WFS provide the airline with cargo warehousing, customer service, mail handling and ramp handling for 45 passenger flights a week linking Honolulu with Los Angles, Houston, Guam, and Newark. WFS will also be responsible for loading and unloading of Continental Airlines’ twice-weekly Boeing 727 freighter services to and from Majuro in the South Pacific.
This latest contract was won by WFS in a competitive bid process with other handling companies.
WFS now provide cargo handling for Continental Airlines at Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Columbus and Buffalo International airports. It is also contracted by the airline to provide passenger operations in Montrose, Denver, Washington National, Halifax, Virgin Islands, Steamboat Springs and Vail.
John Sabol, WFS’ Senior VP Cargo Terminal Services, North America, said: “We are proud to be such a prominent partner of Continental Airlines. It reflects the quality of service and value we provide and also the airline’s trust and confidence in WFS and its staff in North America. This latest contract follows our successful bids for the airline’s cargo handling in Baltimore and Buffalo in the past year.”
