Gerry's dnata expands operations in Pakistan

DUBAI, August 24, 2015

Gerry’s dnata, the Dubai-based air services provider’s arm in Pakistan, is expanding its footprint across the region with the commencement of services at three new airports in the country.

The company is investing over $4 million, further underpinning its position as a key aviation partner in Pakistan, it said in a statement.

To support the growth of the aviation industry across Pakistan, Gerry’s dnata had launched services at Multan International airport on May 1, Quetta International on June 11 and Faisalabad International on July 11 this year.

Across the country, Gerry’s dnata expects to increase its staff count by 140 to accommodate the new services at these locations, thus creating local job opportunities for Pakistanis.

“We have been supporting the aviation industry in Pakistan since 1993,” said Syed Haris Raza, vice president of Gerry’s dnata. “This expansion will help the industry continue to grow and meet the needs of the travel and cargo communities.”

“The aviation industry in Pakistan continues to grow, and as a trusted partner, our goal is to ensure the smooth handling of flights, passengers, and cargo across the country. Our new locations add cargo capacity, passenger handling capabilities and create new jobs—a good thing for the industry and the economy,” added Raza.

The new airport locations increase Gerry’s dnata footprint to seven airports across Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Peshawar, and makes it the largest ground handler in Pakistan. – TradeArabia News Service
