Dnata’s catering team has been voted 'Airline Caterer of the Year, North America, 2019' by readers of PAX International, the leading publication for airline industry executives.

 

The coveted PAX International Readership Award was presented in Hamburg during the annual World Travel Catering Expo.

“We are honoured to be recognised by our industry peers for our quality product, service and innovative approach,” said Robin Padgett, divisional senior vice president for dnata’s catering division. “Quality inflight catering is crucial to passenger satisfaction and loyalty and our North America team delivers that without question.”

Dnata expanded in the North American catering market in 2018 through the acquisition of 121 Inflight Catering. dnata currently operates catering facilities at three U.S. airports, in New York (JFK), Nashville (BNA) and Orlando (SFB), serving commercial, VIP and private aviation companies, fixed base operators and charter aircraft operators.

In 2019, Dnata will further enhance its operations in the continent by opening additional catering facilities at the airports of Boston (BOS), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR) and San Francisco (SFO) in the U.S., and Vancouver (YVR) in Canada. The expansion will create more than 700 jobs with the company.

“Our expansion in 2019 provides an exciting opportunity to lift the level of airline culinary across North America and help our customers deliver the experience passengers have come to expect,” Padgett added.
