We are honoured that Saudia Cargo has chosen to extend its relationship with WFS at stations where we already work together in Europe and the U.S. and, following a full review of the market, to also partner with us for its major cargo operations in Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Manchester. The airline is demonstrating its trust in WFS ability to provide the highest quality of service for its customers, alongside the highest standards of safety and security. An important factor in our success is undoubtedly our ability to offer services to Saudia Cargo at all eight airports within our own facilities and the expertise and flexibility of our people at each airport.
