dnata to create 140 new jobs in Pakistan expansion
Gerry’s dnata, the Pakistani-based arm of the Dubai air services provider, has ramped up its scale of operations with new services at three airports.
The company said it is investing over $4 million, further underpinning its position as a key aviation partner in the country.
Gerry’s dnata said it has launched services at Multan International airport, Quetta International and Faisalabad International.
Across the country, Gerry’s dnata said it expects to increase its staff by 140 to accommodate the new services at these locations, creating job opportunities for Pakistanis.
“We have been supporting the aviation industry in Pakistan since 1993,” said Syed Haris Raza, vice president of Gerry’s dnata. “This expansion will help the industry continue to grow and meet the needs of the travel and cargo communities.”
He added: “The aviation industry in Pakistan continues to grow, and as a trusted partner, our goal is to ensure the smooth handling of flights, passengers, and cargo across the country. Our new locations add cargo capacity, passenger handling capabilities and create new jobs.”
The new airport locations increase Gerry’s dnata footprint to seven airports across Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Peshawar, and makes it the largest ground handler in Pakistan.
