Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) is the launch partner in North America for the latest aircraft deicer developed by Mallaghan, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of aviation ground support equipment.

WFS, which offers ground and cargo handling services in 175 airport locations in more than 22 countries on five continents for 270 airlines globally, will station two Mallaghan TA8200 aircraft deicers at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

Joe Griffith, Commercial Manager for Mallaghan said:

“We are thrilled to launch our aircraft deicer in the North American market in partnership with WFS. 2020 has been a difficult year for the aviation industry, so it’s great to see organizations such as WFS continuing to invest to ensure a safe and enjoyable journey for their clients’ passengers and operations.

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Mallaghan, and this product is of premium quality and is a superb addition to our existing portfolio in North America. We are very happy WFS has chosen to partner with us to support their aircraft deicing operations in Newark as we approach the cold winter months.”

Features of the Mallaghan TA8200 aircraft deicer – a proven product throughout Europe and Asia – include an enclosed operator’s basket, single operator drive system, innovative and robust nozzle design, a forced air system to help reduce glycol usage and environmental impact, and open protocol for easy telemetry system integration.

Terrance Trainor, Senior Vice President – Ground Handling for WFS, added:

“As part of our commitment to the highest standards of safety and security, this equipment will enable WFS to provide superior deicing services for our airline customers at Newark Liberty International Airport. We look forward to realizing the value these machines will bring to WFS and our clients’ as we recover from the pandemic and grow our business in new and exciting directions.”
