Comment on this article

Exercising its option to acquire an additional 40% share in Airport Handling SPA, dnata has increased its total interest in the Milan-based ground handler to 70%.

With majority representation on the board, dnata has already been managing the day-to-day operations of the company since its original investment in 2016.

Airport Handling, which was founded in 2014, provides passenger, ramp and baggage services to over 60 airlines at Milan’s two airports, Malpensa and Linate. Dnata also operates catering facilities at 22 airports in Italy.

Stewart Angus, Divisional Senior Vice President for dnata International Airport Operations & Associated Companies, said: “Following more than two years of successful co-operation and the consistent delivery of excellent service standards to our customers, we are delighted to announce further investment in Airport Handling. We are confident that dnata and our stakeholders will benefit from this strategic acquisition, which underscores our broader vision and commitment to the Italian market.”

Although dnata’s share increases to 70% the current leadership team will continue to manage the business and operations as before.
