UAE-based technology and facilities management company Farnek has been awarded a five-year contract by Dubai Airports.

Farnek, who will mobilise in excess of 800 cleaning staff to fulfil the contract, will be responsible for cleaning Terminals 1 & 2, Concourse D, Cargo & Logistics at Dubai International (DXB), as well as Dubai World Central (DWC).

“As the gateway to a global destination for tourism and trade, and as the world’s number one airport for international passengers, we have very specific requirements in terms of the quality and standard of cleaning required at DXB,” said Dorothee Stein, head of facility care, Dubai Airports.

The contract includes the cleaning services management of landside and airside facilities, including all passenger and stakeholder areas. In addition, at DWC, Farnek will also be responsible for managing the passenger baggage trolley services.

“Being awarded this contract in the face of intense competition speaks volumes for our innovative approach to utilising technology and sustainability in our day to day service offering,” said Julian Khalil, director Soft FM, Farnek.

Earlier this year, Farnek broke ground on its new AED150 million ($40.8 million) staff accommodation in Dubai Investments Park.

The 100,000 square feet facility, which will become home to 5,000 Farnek employees, will be completed by the summer of 2020.
