Including the German carrier, Dnata now provides air services to three airlines in the state capital of Texas with a team of 75 customer-oriented aviation professionals.

Our newest contract with Lufthansa is a testament to our successful partnership and the consistent high quality our teams deliver across the U.S. We stay committed to providing best-in-class services to our airline customers and their passengers, every day.”

Holger Bremes, director commercial Airport Infrastructure, Lufthansa Group, said:  “As a premium airline, Lufthansa Airlines is excited to grow the North American relationship with the start of service in Austin with dnata. With our very positive service experience from destinations like Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and New York (JFK) we are looking forward to providing first class service to our customers with our handling partner at Austin Airport.”
