dnata has opened a new, 4,700 m² facility at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) in the US, continuing its investment in the US market.
Robin Padgett, Divisional Senior Vice President for dnata’s catering division, said: “We are delighted to open another best-in-class catering facility at a major U.S. airport.
“Our expansion into Houston once again underlines our commitment to the United States, where we see excellent business opportunities for dnata.”
Padgett added: “In 2019 we will continue to enhance our operations in the country by investing in new facilities and growing our team with highly-skilled, local catering professionals.
“We look forward to providing quality services and products to an increasing number of airlines in the U.S. ensuring an exceptional dining experience for their passengers on each flight.”
dnata expanded in the U.S. catering market in 2018 through the acquisition of 121 Inflight Catering.

In 2019, dnata will further enhance its operations in the country opening four additional catering facilities at the airports of Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), Newark (EWR) and San Francisco (SFO).
Thus, by year-end, dnata will provide quality catering services at eight U.S. airports.
