Ground handler dnata has expanded its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region and entered the Indonesian market through a partnership with PT UNEX Rajawali Indonesia (UNEX).
The handler is based at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) and offers ground handling and cargo warehousing services.
The partnership will see dnata and UNEX make joint investments in facilities, equipment and training.
The collaboration will launch in Jakarta (CGK) with plans to expand it into other Indonesian airports in the future.
Dirk Goovaerts, dnata’s regional chief executive for Asia Pacific, said: “We are thrilled to partner with UNEX to strengthen Soekarno-Hatta International Airport’s position as a regional hub.
Indonesia is the fourth largest country in the world by population and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. It is also an archipelago country with over 17,000 islands, making air travel the preferred and most efficient transportation method for both passenger and cargo across the nation.
“Indonesia’s expanding tourism economy, coupled with the fast-growing e-commerce market, further strengthens the already promising growth outlook for passenger services and the cargo logistics market in the country,” dnata said.
Dnata operates at 13 airports in the Asia-Pacific region.
