Dubai — Dnata has commenced passenger and ramp handling at London’s Gatwick airport (LGW). Dnata’s expanded operations at LGW started last week, handling three flights a day.

To support the additional services, the company hired over 100 new employees to deliver dispatch, ramp and passenger handling.

Over the past 12 months, dnata has invested more than £20 million in facilities, equipment, training and technology to support the growth of aviation in the United Kingdom. The air services provider provides a range of airport services to airlines flying to LGW.

Dnata UK has ground and cargo handling capabilities at London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester airports as well as cargo handling services at Birmingham, Glasgow, Nottingham East Midland and Newcastle, and facilitates the movement of cargo through 17 regional airports with its intra-airport trucking operation.

“The UK is a global aviation hub, and our goal is to support the industry’s growth throughout the region,” said Gary Morgan, CEO of dnata’s UK operations. “We now offer passenger handling services at five of the UK’s busiest terminals, including Heathrow’s T2, T3, and T4, Manchester, and now Gatwick. Our customers have access to a full-service team of experts at each of these terminals, supporting their needs.”
