[ August 3, 2015   //   ]

Airfreight handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) is to extend its footprint at Heathrow after it a new ten-year lease on a 82,400sq ft airside unit at B549 Shoreham Road. It follows the announcement in March 2015 of a lease on the 150,000sq ft Building 550, giving WFS nearly 400,000sq ft at Heathrow Cargo Centre in four units.

The deal was secured through SEGRO and Aviva Investors, through their joint venture, Airport Property Partnership (APP). Director of APP and SEGRO’s Business Unit Director for Greater London, Alan Holland, said: “WFS is a major player in the cargo handling industry and works with many of the world’s leading airlines. Continued expansion at the Heathrow Cargo Centre will help accommodate their growing client base.”
