Dnata has been re-awarded the licence to provide ground and cargo handling services at Zurich Airport for another seven years until 2025.
The bid follows a public tender conducted by Zurich Airport and dnata says it will be able to seamlessly transition from its current licence to its new one with no interruption to operations.
European Union and Swiss legislation require airport and governmental authorities to open a bidding procedure for restricted airport operation activities every seven years.
Dnata Europe chief executive officer, Mark Bradley says: “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.
“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.”
The company entered the Swiss ground handling market in 2007 when it acquired Jet Aviation Handling.
