Zurich Airport reappoints dnata for cargo & ground handling services
April 26, 2018: Zurich Airport once again has selected dnata to provide full ground and cargo handling services at the airport for another seven years from December 2018 till 2025.
This allows the handler giant to seamlessly transition from its current licence to the new one, with no interruption to operations.
dnata’s successful bid follows a public tender conducted by Zurich Airport. European Union and Swiss legislation require 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, CEO - Europe, dnata.
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.
