WFS welcomes China Eastern in Liege with new contract to handle B777 cargo flights


China Eastern Airlines has extended its cargo partnership with Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) with a new contract to handle Boeing 777 cargo-only flights in Liege.

The companies have signed a new three-year agreement, where WFS will manage an estimated 32,000 tonnes of cargo annually. This cargo will be transported on up to nine weekly B777 flights from Yantai Penglai International Airport, located in China’s Shandong Province, to the Belgian airport.

“Having handled charter flights for China Eastern in Liege last summer, we are delighted to have won this opportunity to support the airline’s scheduled cargo-only services to and from Yantai. Liege is a significant and growing cargo hub for WFS in Europe, so it is especially pleasing to welcome another long-term WFS partner as a customer at the airport. We see this as a sign of China Eastern’s trust in WFS and our high reputation for handling freighters and cargo-only services. This new route for the airline also shows the resilience of the LGG freighter market and the role WFS is playing in its development,” said Nathan De Valck, Managing Director, WFS Belgium.

In addition to managing warehouse operations, WFS is responsible for providing ramp handling services for the airline’s 777 flights.

The contract in Liege increases WFS’ role as one of China Eastern’s preferred cargo-handling partners. WFS also supports the airline’s cargo operations and growth at other important airport gateways, including Paris CDG, Frankfurt, Stockholm, and New York JFK.
