Air services provider announces launch of new services in Gatwick, Birmingham, and Glasgow

Dubai-based air services provide dnata has 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 in a statement that it is also reviewing opportunities at Newcastle and East Midlands Airports.

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 25,000 sq ft, 17,000 sq ft and 15,000 sq ft respectively to dnata City’s 206,000 sq ft of cargo capacity.

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

“Cargo volumes coming in and out of the UK need to easily make it to the far reaches of the country,” added Morgan. “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.”

To date, dnata has invested more than £100m in the cargo infrastructure at Heathrow and throughout the UK.
