Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has won the tender to operate Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s (H-JAIA) new Cargo Building C, a key part of the airport’s master plan to accommodate the future aviation needs of the region. WFS is taking a long-term lease on the new facility.
WFS will commence operations in Cargo Building C in late 2019 and said it will announce its launch customers shortly.
Located in the airport’s South Cargo Area, the newly constructed facility combines a 120,000 square feet warehouse and 20,000 square feet of office space and will incorporate freighter ramp handling facilities and a container bypass handling system. To support customers’ premium temperature-controlled products, it will also house 2,500 square feet of dedicated cooling facilities capable of storing 140 skids plus ULD containers for handling pharmaceuticals as well as other perishables cargoes. WFS is also commencing the process to become the first cargo handling partner in Atlanta to achieve Good Distribution Practice (GDP) certification.
