Dubai-based air services provider dnata has announced the acquisition of the remaining 50 percent of Servair Airchef in Italy, taking its total ownership to 100 percent.

Founded in 1995 as part of Chef Italia Group, dnata’s subsidiary Alpha became a shareholder of Servair Airchef in 2001.

Servair Airchef is an in-flight caterer in Italy with a presence in 23 airports including Rome, Milan and Venice, employing around 700 employees, producing some 40,000 meals daily.

The company also provides aircraft cleaning services at seven Italian airports.

"The full acquisition of this business reflects dnata’s long term strategy to further invest in its core business,” said Stewart Angus, divisional senior vice president, dnata.

"The Italian business complements our existing in-flight catering and cabin cleaning operations around the world.

"The company has a strong, dynamic management team and I am confident that together we can develop the business further, in line with the outstanding service and quality for which dnata is renowned,” he added.

“Our customers are the real wealth of our company,” said Michele Mezzatesta, managing director of Servair Airchef. 

“We have always strived to deliver the very best service combined with consistently high quality products. The drive and commitment of our dedicated staff has earned us a solid reputation for exceeding our customers’ expectations and we look forward to continuing to work with the management team at dnata to further develop the business.”
