Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), a member of the SATS Group, has won a three-year contract to provide passenger and ramp handling services for Air France at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.


Launched on May 23, 2024, Phoenix is the airline's 17th destination in the United States.


It now operates three direct flights a week connecting Paris Charles de Gaulle and Phoenix, the capital of the US state of Arizona.


WFS noted that this new contract represents WFS' third new ground handling agreement with the Air France-KLM Group in North America in the last 12 months.


"The opportunity to support the launch of Air France's newest route in the United States reflects the growing relationship between Air France-KLM and WFS and the airlines' confidence in our ability to meet their high standards for customer service and operational excellence," said Paul Walton, senior vice president, ground handling & express cargo at WFS.


"We are proud to extend our strategic partnership with Air France-KLM to another North American city. We hope this will lead to further opportunities for collaboration as we continue to demonstrate the value of partnering with WFS," he added.


WFS has 85 stations in Canada and the United States that offer network connectivity throughout North America.
