dnata gears up to support one of the world’s biggest airshows

dnata, a leading global air and travel services provider, is gearing up to play an important role at the highly anticipated Dubai Airshow which will take place at Dubai World Central (DWC) between 13-17 November.

As a key strategic partner of Dubai Airports, dnata is set to collaborate closely with authorities and organisers to ensure safe and efficient airside operations throughout the event.

dnata will allocate an impressive fleet of 100 pieces of ground support equipment (GSE) and over 30 dedicated staff to support service delivery for a seamless execution.

dnata’s Technical Services team will provide 24/7 support for the GSE throughout the show. The company’s teams will work overnight on each day of the event to ensure all GSE is in perfect condition, refuelled, recharged, washed and cleaned to support all aircraft movements.

Airshow attendees will have the unique opportunity to witness dnata’s advanced, electric pushback tractors in action as they adeptly move some of the world’s largest aircraft.

Steve Allen, CEO of dnata Group, said: “Dubai Airshow continues to be one of the world’s most prestigious aviation events.

“We take pride in playing a crucial role in ensuring that airside operations run efficiently throughout each day.

“Our commitment to safety, sustainability and service excellence will be on full display during the event, including exciting demonstrations of our electric pushback tractors.

“We look forward to connecting with our partners and the broader aviation community at the event.”

Airshow guests will have the opportunity to see the future of sustainable GSE operations at DWC. In the busy world of aviation, ensuring the smooth operation of the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the huge Airbus A380, requires cutting-edge ground support equipment. Part of dnata’s A380 turnaround operations in Dubai is the Kalmar TBL800e electric Aircraft Tractor.
