Dubai-based air services provider dnata has announced that its UK unit has launched private aviation services at London’s Heathrow airport.

Dnata's new service includes all aspects of the private aviation sector — VIP passengers, pilots and crew, and airport services — and means its UK operations at Heathrow are now capable of handling all types of aircraft, from helicopters to A380s.

“The launch of private aviation services at Heathrow airport makes dnata the airport’s only one-stop-shop for all air services — from ground handling and cargo to passenger services and VIP handling — we are able deliver results for all aviation customers,” said Paul Williams, business development director – Ground Services of dnata’s UK operations.

“Our expertise in private aviation services extends beyond ground handling, and includes pilot and crew services, airport services, access to the Royal Suite Terminal, VIP passenger handling and smooth airport transfers.” 

dnata's UK currently provides ground handling and cargo services at Heathrow and Manchester airports, with additional cargo capabilities at Gatwick, Glasgow and Birmingham airports.

Last month, dnata announced the opening of three new facilities in the UK to further improve its cargo infrastructure in the key European market.

The company said it has launched new facilities at Gatwick, Birmingham, and Glasgow, expanding the company’s cargo capabilities to five of the country’s key regional airports including Heathrow and Manchester.

dnata said it was also reviewing opportunities at Newcastle and East Midlands Airports.
