GTA dnata to expand operations in Canada

By Damian Brett

GTA dnata has been awarded a five-year ground handling license and will establish operations at Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

The company will provide ramp, passenger and cargo warehousing services to airlines at the airport, with services to commence in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The license expands on the handler’s operations at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), where it handled 90,000 tons of cargo in 2019.

“We are thrilled to expand our network and launch operations in Vancouver,” said Mario D’Urso, GTA dnata’s chairman. “The time is right for us to make this move as our commitment to safety, quality and service excellence is now more important than ever. We thank the Vancouver Airport Authority for this opportunity and look forward to a successful start-up and much future success.”

Dnata entered the Canadian aviation market through the acquisition of a 50% stake in GTA Aviation‘s cargo and ground handling operations at Toronto Pearson International Airport in 2016.
