Dnata to get new cargo facility at Manchester airport

Comment on this article

MAG Property is developing a brand new, 145,000 square foot cargo facility for dnata at Manchester airport.

The ‘build to suit’ premises, to be known as dnata City North, are being developed by MAG Property, the property and development arm of Manchester Airports Group, at Manchester Airport’s World Freight Terminal.

Representing an investment of over £30m, the new high bay facility will include 20,000 square feet of office space over two floors. Particularly well situated for ease of airfield access, the new facility will allow dnata to consolidate and grow its Manchester operations, with a capacity to handle over 150,000 tonnes per annum. The new facility will become operational in late summer next year and stands to benefit from the airport’s ongoing £1bn transformation programme, which in addition to passenger and terminal facilities includes the remodelling of taxi-ways and additional aircraft stands to accommodate more aircraft.

Designed by architects RPS, dnata’s new building will set a new benchmark for air cargo handling and warehousing, and will include flexible office accommodation that will provide an innovative mixture of workspace and meeting facilities, as well as breakout spaces and fitness suite.
