Dnata doubles operations in Canada

TORONTO, November 9, 2018

GTA dnata, the Dubai-based air services provider's arm in Canada, has expanded operations at Toronto Pearson International Airport with the start of a new, long-term partnership with Air Transat. 

Air Transat, Canada’s leading holiday airline, operates approximately 140 weekly flights from Toronto during peak season. Starting this month, GTA dnata will provide ground and passenger services to the airline, more than doubling the number of flights handled by its operations. To support the growth, GTA dnata has hired more than 200 additional staff to its team, which now consists of 450 customer-oriented aviation professionals.

Mario D’Urso, chairman of GTA dnata, said: “We are proud to have been selected the ground handling partner of Air Transat at Toronto Pearson International Airport. This long-term contract is a vote of confidence in our quality services and we look forward to supporting the extensive operations of Canada’s largest leisure carrier. It is our aim to exceed our customers’ expectations, and we will continue to work hard to deliver excellent service to all our airline partners in Toronto with our expanded team.”

GTA dnata now serves 12 airlines in Toronto, assisting 4,800 passengers and moving two tons of cargo every day.

Underlining its commitment to the Canadian aviation market, in January 2019, dnata will also establish flight catering operations and open a new, state-of-the-art facility in Vancouver. Representing an investment of more than CAD$7 million ($5.3 million), the facility will have an initial capacity of up to 8,000 inflight meals a day.

A global air services provider and the trusted partner of over 300 airline customers, dnata offers ground handling, cargo and catering services at 127 airports in 18 countries. - TradeArabia News Service
