Worldwide Flight Services
(WFS) has opened its latest
and third cargo handling
facility at Copenhagen Airport.
The new Terminal 3 cargo building
adds a further 3,700m² warehouse
facility to WFS’ handling infrastructure
in Copenhagen, where it handles over
100,000 tonnes of cargo a year, carried
onboard passenger and freighter

Since opening its first Scandinavian
handling operation in Copenhagen in
2008, WFS has become the largest
cargo handler at the airport, serving
over 30 airline clients with flights to the
Danish capital. It also provides cargo
handling services for more than 125
offline carriers. The original 4,600m²
cargo warehouse terminal was added
to with a new 3,000m² Terminal 2
facility in 2010, and, in 2019, WFS also
invested in a new GDP-certified Pharma
facility, increasing its footprint by a
further 1,500m², to support the cluster
of life science companies in the Greater
Copenhagen area.
“Copenhagen is a
very progressive
airport with a strong
commitment to
supporting its cargo
customers. Since
2008, WFS has also
demonstrated its confidence in the
Danish and regional air cargo market
through our continued investment and
expansion, and we will continue to play
a lead role in the growth of the airport
and the airlines who fly here. We see
a great future,” said WFS’ Managing
Director Scandinavia, Thomas Egeland.
Earlier this year, WFS also entered a
renewable energy partnership with
NRGreen in Denmark to generate
100% of its power requirements by
positioning 3,500 high efficiency solar
panels across the roof area of WFS’
cargo facilities at Copenhagen Airport.
The establishment of the 1.4 MW solar
power system – the largest in the
Greater Copenhagen area – will provide
an annual CO2 saving of up to 240
tons, the equivalent of a passenger car
driving 57 times around the world. This
is sufficient to power WFS’ all-electric
forklift and vehicle fleets and the LED
lighting systems in its warehouse
operations, and return surplus energy
to the national grid.
