Qantas to move to dnata City

[ February 19, 2014   //   ]

Australian carrier Qantas is moving its UK freight handling and offices to the new dnata City centre at London Heathrow under a long-term agreement to manage freight handling on its twice-daily A380 services to Heathrow.

The dnata City project comprises a 20-acre cargo complex based on five warehouses, a transport facility and yard for airside operations enclosed in a security-fenced area. Other features include fully automated cargo handling, a dedicated AVI handling room, chiller rooms and valuable handling facilities. The development will also encompass the existing 140,000 square foot Cargo Point and West Point buildings.

The  Heathrow development is one of a chain of handling facilities operated by Dubai-owned dnata across the UK, , which recently added cargo points at London Gatwick, Birmingham, East Midlands, Newcastle and Glasgow.
