dnata opens cargo facilities at UK airports

By Staff Reports on October 30, 2013

dnata announced the opening of three new facilities at Gatwick, Birmingham and Glasgow airports, expanding the company’s cargo capabilities to five of the UK’s key regional airports including Heathrow and Manchester.

Development at the three additional regional airports complements the approaching opening of dnata City, Heathrow’s newest cargo hub. The cargo facilities at Birmingham, Gatwick and Glasgow will add a combined 57,000 sq. feet (5,296 sq. meters) to dnata City’s 206,000 sq. feet (19,138 sq. meters) of cargo capacity.

“Adding cargo capacity at Birmingham, Gatwick and Glasgow airports supports the smooth flow of shipments throughout the UK,” Gary Morgan, CEO of dnata’s UK operations, said. “With these new facilities, our customers have full UK coverage through the dnata UK network.”

The expansion to three of the UK’s key regional airports provides customers the opportunity to expand their import and export reach into the country.

“Cargo volumes coming in and out of the UK need to easily make it to the far reaches of the country,” Morgan said. “By adding cargo services at these regional airports, on top of our existing capabilities at Heathrow and Manchester, dnata customers can rest easy knowing that there will be a seamless service across the UK network.”
