dnata Singapore launches new maintenance base at Changi Airport

DNATA Singapore has opened a new, 6,900 sq m maintenance base at Changi Airport, which will help boost the company's handling capacity.

The launch was inaugurated by Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport, Khaw Boon Wan.

Located next to the dnata Cargo Centre within the Changi Airfreight Centre, the base has the capacity to handle more than 9,000 repairs and maintenance activities annually. It is equipped with new equipment and technology that will triple dnata's handling capacity.

dnata Singapore's current fleet of over 320 motorised and 1,200 non-motorised ground service equipment (GSE) will be serviced at the new maintenance base.

dnata Singapore's chief executive Mark Edwards said: "In an effort to future proof our business, it's crucial that our infrastructure and support services keep up with the growth of dnata Singapore's business. This new maintenance base is important in ensuring that our fleet of GSE runs smoothly and efficiently. We need to keep up with increased pressure on our equipment and find innovative and resource-light ways to repair and maintain our GSE, as their use goes up."
