100% business class airline The Company joins forces with WFS for the very first cargo route
The Company mandated Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) to support its very first foray into the air freight market.
It has awarded WFS a three-year contract to handle cargo on board its Airbus A321LR services from Paris Orly to Newark International Airport in New York, which will drop from the current four flights per week to seven in September.
This is the first time that La Compagnie has transported freight on board its business passenger services. Depending on the number of passengers, each flight is expected to carry up to 3.5 tonnes to and from France and the United States.
Damien Paries, VP Ground Operations, La Compagnie-Dreamjet, said: “As a world leader in air freight processing, WFS is the ideal partner to support the launch of our very first freight service. We are confident that they will provide our cargo customers with the same high-quality experience that our passengers appreciate when they choose La Compagnie. “
WFS also holds ground-handling contracts with La Compagnie à Newark for its passenger and ramp services to Paris Orly and Nice.
“The Company has recognized the important business opportunity of transporting freight on this main route linking Paris and New York and, by choosing to partner with WFS, can be assured of the highest standards in terms of safety and security of the freight, as well as proactive customer service. We are confident that companies moving freight between Europe and North America will welcome another capacity choice in the market and we look forward to contributing to The Company’s success, ”added John Batten, Executive Vice President cargo – EMEAA at WFS.
