WFS awarded official handler status for 49th International Paris Air Show


Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has been appointed as the official handler for the 49th International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, the world's leading aviation and aerospace event.
WFS will provide ramp handling for all the aircraft manufacturers and exhibitors at the week-long event, which begins on June 20th 2011. This includes marshalling, pushback, aircraft parking and servicing, cabin and exterior cleaning, technical assistance, ground power, aircraft safety and controlling the flow of aircraft. It will locate 110 pieces of ground services equipment at Le Bourget to carry out its broad range of responsibilities as well as 150 dedicated WFS personnel. WFS is also operating the heliport and passenger facility at Le Bourget.
The Paris Air Show has been the world's leading aviation and aerospace event for over 100 years and it once again brings together leading companies from across the globe to showcase the latest technological innovations in the aviation and aerospace industries.
Over seven days, the event will attract over 138,000 trade visitors and 193,000 general public visitors to see 2,000 international exhibitors and over 140 aircraft, including 42 that are participating in the daily flying display. 
Olivier Bijaoui, Executive Chairman, President and CEO of WFS, said: "As a French company headquartered in Paris, we are extremely proud to have been selected to play such an important role in the success of the International Paris Air Show. We have worked closely as a partner of the event organisers since 2001 and it is very satisfying to see the continued growth of the Air Show and the huge respect it has from leading aviation and space companies from all over the world." 
WFS handles 60,000 aircraft movements a year in France alone and assists over five million passengers. It is also the country's largest cargo handling organization. In September 2010, Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) became the first ground handling company in Paris to enter the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) registry in recognition of its safety, security and quality standards.
