Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Delta Cargo have extended their long-standing partnership with dnata for a further five years, continuing the successful operation of ground handling and export services from the joint London Heathrow hub and Manchester Airport. The partnership also includes regional cargo gateways London Gatwick, Aberdeen, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Newcastle.
In conjunction with the partnership extension, the Virgin Atlantic Cargo and Delta Cargo teams will continue to work from the dnata City East facility. The airlines’ cargo operational and customer teams have so far benefited from working under one roof, sharing ways of working to support significant growth for the cargo sectors of the two carriers in the last year.
Virgin Atlantic and Delta Cargo are also set to take advantage of the brand new import facility, dnata City East Phase 2, later this year. The building will provide an additional 117,000 ft² in an adjacent state of the art building, as the two carriers continue to support vital supply chains across the globe.
