Egypt Air selects dnata for air cargo handling in Dubai
Egypt Air has contracted dnata to provide the airline with cargo handling services from its facility at Dubai World Central (DWC).
The move comes as the Egyptian airline launches a new direct freighter service between Cairo and Dubai. The new route will initially operate once a week using an Airbus A300F aircraft.
Egypt Air has been using dnata at Dubai International Airport since 2005. The expansion of the partnership underlines the attraction of Dubai as an air cargo hub and the demand for dnata’s reliable and quality services and dedicated team, dnata said in a release.
Egypt Air joins 120 other airlines at 43 airports also using dnata’s services. The company handles over 3 million tonnes of cargo a year.
Bernd Struck, senior vice president, UAE Cargo & DWC Airline Services for dnata, said: “Delivering service and operational excellence to our customers has been the core of our business for decades. DWC is designed to support logistics well into the future and we are excited to welcome EGYPTAIR to be part of this journey with us.”
