dnata retains ground handling role at Zurich for seven years

Dnata has been re-awarded the licence to provide full ground and cargo handling services at Zurich Airport for another seven years until 2025. 
The Middle East-owned company’s successful bid follows a public tender conducted by Zurich Airport. European Union and Swiss legislation requires airport and governmental authorities to open a bidding procedure for restricted airport operations activities every seven years.
“We are very pleased that Zurich Airport has found in us a reliable partner and has entrusted us to provide ground handling and cargo needs to our airline customers at the airport for another seven years.” said Mark Bradley, chief executive for Europe at dnata.
“Zurich Airport represents the best of Switzerland – precision, efficiency and uncompromising quality. We are committed to work hand in hand with all our airport partners to continue making Zurich Airport one of the best airports in the world.”
In Switzerland, dnata operates ground handling and cargo services in Zurich and Geneva airports. The company entered the Swiss ground handling market in 2007 when it acquired Jet Aviation Handling, whose roots in providing aviation services in Switzerland date back 50 years.
Today, dnata employs over 1,300 people in Switzerland, handling more than 33,000 aircraft and over 95,000 tonnes of cargo at both airports annually.
