Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) helped to ensure the 322,000 visitors to last week’s 52nd International Paris Airshow experienced many of the world’s finest aircraft, both on the ground and in the air.

As the official ground handler for the world’s biggest aerospace event, the 50-strong WFS team dedicated to the air show at Le Bourget assisted with the movements of 98 aircraft, including those on static display and others taking part in the spectacular daily air display.

Continuing a role it has performed at the event since 2001, WFS helped to ensure the highest level of aircraft safety and security through the quality of its aircraft marshalling, pushback and parking services. WFS, which also provided passenger services and aircraft cleaning, supplied 110 pieces of ground handling equipment for the show.

“As always, this was an intense week of operations that required all of our ground handling expertise to ensure the aircraft operations in the air and on the ground were performed on-time and in accordance with the air show organiser’s requirements. We are delighted to have contributed to yet another highly successful Paris Air Show and wish to acknowledge the outstanding work of the WFS team at Le Bourget,” said John Batten, EVP Cargo Europe Middle East & Asia and acting EVP Europe Ground Handling at WFS.

WFS also wishes to thank all of its customers and partners who attended the event for their support. Over $150 billion of new aircraft ordered were announced at the 52nd International Paris Air Show.
