Cargo handling company's long-term stay at JFK
Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has signed a 15 year lease on a new 32,150 sqm cargo terminal, the first phase of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s comprehensive vision plan to enhance the international reputation of John F. Kennedy airport, and increase its annual handling capacity by 300,000 t.
Handling over 650,000 t of cargo a year for nearly 70 airlines at its nine facilities at the airport, currently spanning a footprint of over 70,600 sqm, WFS is already one of the largest handlers at JFK.
The projected opening of the new building in Q4/2020 supports WFS’ commitment to the highest standards of safety, security and service, and will also enable it to offer JFK’s first dedicated facilities for temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products and perishables cargo. (ah)
