Business-class airline La Compagnie steps into air cargo

Business-class airline La Compagnie has appointed Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) as its cargo handler as it enters the air cargo market. The airline 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.
WFS already provides ground handling services to La Compagnie in Newark for its passenger and ramp services to Paris Orly and Nice. Depending on the number of passengers, each flight is expected to carry up to 3.5 tonnes.
Damien Paries, vice president ground operations, La Compagnie-Dreamjet, said: “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.”
