Dnata boosts Erbil operations
Global air and travel services provider Dnata is expanding its operations in Erbil, Iraq. The company has opened a new, advanced cool chain facility and a bus maintenance facility at Erbil International Airport (EBL), which together represent a total investment of USD 3.5 million. Dnata will also invest an additional USD 14 million and add a 16,000 sqm cargo warehouse to its infrastructure in Iraq.
The three new facilities will create up to 100 local jobs. Dnata’s new cargo warehouse, which is expected to open in 2023, will be able to process 100,000 t of cargo, with a special focus on pharma and other cool chain commodities, annually. The facility will be equipped with water harvesting, low energy lighting and an all-electric forklift fleet. (cj)
