Dubai-based air services provider dnata has added two new customers to its catering operations’ client roster at Changi Airport in Singapore.

The new contracts with Qatar Airways and SWISS were announced just as Lufthansa renewed its catering contract with dnata for another five years.

dnata will serve 1,500 meals a day to passengers on three daily flights departing from Singapore.

dnata said in a statement that it expects to hire at least 10 additional staff to fulfil the contact commitments.

“The partnerships with Qatar and SWISS and renewal with Lufthansa are great indicators of dnata’s strong catering operations at Changi,” said David Loft, Vice President, dnata International Catering.

“Our business in Singapore uplifts more than 4.5 million meals a year, and that number continues to grow.”

dnata said it works closely with customers to create menus specifically suited to the airline, customer profile and regional tastes.

In Singapore, dnata’s other catering customers include Air China, Delta, Air France, Jetstar Asia, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, China Airlines and Garuda Indonesia.

In Singapore, dnata’s catering operations service more than 24 airlines and 50 flights a day.
