Etihad Cargo has certified international ground handling services company Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) as a Preferred Handling Partner (PHP).

The Etihad Cargo-WFS PHP deal will standardise the product and service we jointly deliver, strengthen our network operations, and will enhance the reliability and quality of ground handling services to our customers. It also raises the bar for other suppliers to join our Etihad Cargo PHP program, said David Kerr, Etihad Airways Vice President Cargo. We look forward to developing this partnership into one of mutual confidence and trust, and maximising the returns on our commercial operations.

We welcome a program that promotes high-quality cargo handling procedures and world class service levels because it enables us to demonstrate the professionalism and consistency of our people and processes, and provide for ongoing growth opportunities.
