Air services provider dnata has secured a major new contract with Lufthansa Group at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS)

The partnership will see dnata provide passenger and ramp services to four of the group’s airlines, contributing to the travel experience of an estimated 1.6 million passengers on 7,300 flights annually.

Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, Austrian Airlines and Air Dolomiti operate a range of narrow-body Airbus and Embraer aircraft between the Dutch capital and four cities: Frankfurt and Munich in Germany, Zürich in Switzerland, and Vienna in Austria.

dnata consistently invests in infrastructure, equipment and technologies to enhance its offering in Amsterdam. In addition to the ongoing construction of dnata Cargo City Amsterdam, it has recently taken delivery of a fleet of electric smart cars in an effort to replace all airside diesel vehicles in its Schiphol fleet.

As a result of its latest investment, more than 65% of dnata’s 250 pieces of ground support equipment (GSE) is electric or powered by solar energy in The Netherlands.

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

The group will provide services to 7,3000 AMS flights a year
