The state-of-the art facility quadruples Dnata's catering capacity in the Irish capital, enabling the company to deliver 40,000 quality inflight meals a day for customers. Already serving six airlines from its existing facility in Dublin, Dnata's continued expansion underlines its long-term commitment to Ireland and the local aviation industry.

 

Covering an area of 6,300m², Dnata's new facility is located in the Dublin Airport Logistics Park – near its existing operation. It is equipped with the latest technologies and has a capacity of over 30,000 meals a day. Dnata's expansion comes as a result of an agreement with Aer Lingus, which sees it now provide inflight catering services to the airline at four airports in Dublin, Shannon, Cork and Belfast. Dnata is working closely with Aer Lingus and its other partners to flexibly meet constantly changing demand while ensuring the highest possible level of safety across its operations amid current global challenges.

 

Robin Padgett, Dnata's Divisional Senior Vice President for Catering, said: "It is great to be operational at our new, ultramodern catering centre, the 65th production facility in our global network. Despite the impact of COVID-19, our team and our partners have managed to deliver a quality operation on budget, as planned.

 

"We look forward to serving more customers in Dublin, both in the air and on the ground, with a team of highly-experienced culinary professionals."
