dnata secures major contract with Lufthansa Group at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

dnata, a prominent global air and travel services provider, has won a significant new contract with Lufthansa Group at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS). The partnership will involve dnata delivering passenger and ramp services to four of the group’s airlines: Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, Austrian Airlines, and Air Dolomiti.

With this new contract, dnata is set to contribute to a seamless travel experience for approximately 1.6 million passengers on 7,300 flights annually. The airlines operate various narrow-body Airbus and Embraer aircraft between Amsterdam and four cities: Frankfurt, Munich, Zürich, and Vienna.

Jan van Anrooy, Managing Director of dnata Netherlands, expressed pride in partnering with Lufthansa Group, stating, “We are proud to partner with Lufthansa Group, supporting them with our quality services above and below the wing. Our deep understanding of customers needs will ensure a safe and smooth journey for passengers. We look forward to a successful partnership with Lufthansa Group in Amsterdam.”

dnata has been consistently investing in infrastructure, equipment, and technologies to enhance its services in Amsterdam. In addition to the ongoing construction of dnata Cargo City Amsterdam, one of the world’s most advanced facilities of its kind, the company has recently acquired a fleet of electric smart cars to replace all airside diesel vehicles at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. As a result, more than 65% of dnata’s 250 pieces of ground support equipment (GSE) in The Netherlands are now electric or powered by solar energy.

Currently, dnata provides ground and cargo handling services to 37 airlines in Amsterdam, with a team of 1,000 dedicated aviation professionals handling 10,000 flights and moving 550,000 tonnes of cargo annually.
