DUBAI, U.A.E., 17th August 2015: Gerry’s dnata, the largest ground handler in Pakistan, has ramped up its scale of operations in Pakistan with the commencement of its service at three new airports in Pakistan investing over USD four million, further underpinning its position as a key aviation partner in the country.

To support the growth of the aviation industry across Pakistan, Gerry’s dnata has launched services at Multan International airport (MUX) on the 1st of May, Quetta International (UET) on the 11th of June and Faisalabad International (LYP) on the 11th of July this year.

Across the country, Gerry’s dnata expects to increase its staff count by 140 to accommodate the new services at these locations creating local job opportunities for Pakistanis.

“We have been supporting the aviation industry in Pakistan since 1993,” said Syed Haris Raza, Vice President of Gerry’s dnata. “This expansion will help the industry continue to grow and meet the needs of the travel and cargo communities.”

 “The aviation industry in Pakistan continues to grow, and as a trusted partner, our goal is to ensure the smooth handling of flights, passengers, and cargo across the country. Our new locations add cargo capacity, passenger handling capabilities and create new jobs—a good thing for the industry and the economy,” added Raza.

The new airport locations increase Gerry’s dnata footprint to seven airports across Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Peshawar, and makes it the largest ground handler in Pakistan, now able to welcome over 3 million passengers in and out of these locations every year.
