Turkish Airlines awards cargo handling contract to Africa Flight Services

Dec 13, 2016: Turkish Airlines has awarded cargo handling agreement in Johannesburg, South Africa to Flight Services (AFS), part of Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) global airport services group.

AFS, which already provides cargo handling services for the airline in Cape Town, expects to handle more than 2,500 tonnes a year for Turkish Airlines in Johannesburg. The airline operates daily Airbus A330-300 flights between the city’s OR Tambo International Airport and Istanbul.

Malcolm Tonkin, General Manager – Cargo (South Africa) at AFS, said, “Having served Turkish Airlines in Cape Town since July 2015, we have been able to demonstrate the quality and reliability of our cargo handling services and this has clearly given the airline confidence to award us this additional contract in Johannesburg. We now look forward to serving their cargo customers at both of our airport locations in South Africa.”
