Brussels Airlines has awarded a long-term passenger and ramp handling contract to Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) at Manchester International Airport.

Effective 1 February 2014, the three-year agreement will see WFS providing services for Brussels Airlines 19 flights a week between the two cities.

The carrier serves Manchester using AVRO RJ100, Airbus A319/A320 and Dash 8 passenger aircraft.

WFS, which was awarded a ground handling licence to commence passenger and ramp handling at Manchester in April last year, will provide check-in, gate, operations and aircraft dispatch services for Brussels Airlines as well as loading and unloading of baggage and cargo, and baggage make up.

Paul Mallard, Vice President Business Development, Ground Handling at WFS, said, We are proud that Brussels Airlines has chosen to award such an important contract to WFS following a competitive tender process. Its regular scheduled services will enhance our growing portfolio of leading airline customers. We have invested at Manchester Airport because we recognised a need for the high quality services WFS provides and our success in winning long-term airline contracts proves this decision was correct.
