Dnata continues its international growth with the announcement it will commence airport handling operations at Clark International Airport, in the Philippines. The announcement marks the company’s 75th airport location, and its second location in the Philippines.
Dnata started providing airport handling for Emirates Airline’s daily service from Dubai to Clark International on Oct. 1, 2013. Clark International serves the Greater Manila area and the northern regions of Luzon. Last year the airport welcomed more than 700,000 passengers.
“Entering Clark International Airport is a milestone for dnata, growing our international footprint to 75 airports,” said Gary Chapman, dnata’s president. “The dnata team in the Philippines has a reputation for delivering industry-leading services to each of our customers. It is this reputation which fuels the expansion into Clark International.”
Operating in the Philippines since 1999, dnata’s team at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila handled more than 1.2 million passengers last year. To fulfil the terms of the new contract, dnata expects to hire an additional 30 individuals, growing dnata’s team in the Philippines to more than 250.
