Dnata invests in US catering operations

DUBAI, April 24, 2019

Dubai-based dnata has opened a new, 4,700-sq-m facility at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas, US, offering catering services in Houston with a capacity of more than 10,000 meals a day.

Dnata’s latest expansion will create more than 150 new jobs with the company. The launch customer is British Airways, which operates two daily flights from Houston.

Robin Padgett, divisional senior vice president for dnata’s catering division, said: "We are delighted to open another best-in-class catering facility at a major US airport. Our expansion into Houston once again underlines our commitment to the US, where we see excellent business opportunities for dnata."

In 2019, dnata will further enhance its operations in the country by opening four additional catering facilities at the airports of Boston, Los Angeles, Newark, and San Francisco. By year-end, dnata will provide quality catering services at eight US airports.

Dnata expanded in the US catering market in 2018 through the acquisition of 121 Inflight Catering. Besides Houston, dnata currently operates catering facilities at three US airports - in New York, Nashville, and Orlando, serving commercial, high-ranking, and private aviation companies, fixed base operators and charter aircraft operators. - TradeArabia News Service
