About us

Worldwide Flight Services (Ireland) Limited trading as WFSI was established in Ireland in 2005 to provide Air Cargo Handling services to the airlines and the Irish air cargo community. The founders, Gerry Jackson and Brendan Byrne who were colleagues in Aer Lingus, saw an opening in the market for an independent handler, offering quality facilities and services to airline and freight forwarders alike.

In 2005, Gerry and Brendan approached Worldwide Flight Services, the global market leader in the area of air cargo handling, with a view to establishing operations in Ireland. By the summer of that year, they had formed a joint venture, secured facilities at all Irish airports and commenced handling their first customer, American Airlines. United Airlines were quickly on board and ever since the company has seen continual growth year on year:
