Ricardo Morrison, Chief Executive Officer of dnata Brazil said, “This is a particularly significant win for us and we are proud to welcome Emirates and its iconic double decker into the dnata family in Brazil. It’s a testament to the investments we have made and recognition of our provision of quality service and safety, as well as our infrastructure and systems throughout Brazil.”
