La Compagnie ventures into air cargo

La Compagnie has appointed Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) to support its first-ever venture into the air cargo market.

It has awarded WFS a three-year contract to handle cargo onboard its Airbus A321LR services from Paris Orly to Newark International Airport, which will increase from the current four flights a week to seven in September.

This is the first time La Compagnie has carried cargo onboard 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 US.

WFS also holds ground handling contracts with La Compagnie in Newark for its passenger and ramp services to Paris Orly and Nice.
