A substantial portion of these contracts, amounting to over US$ 100 million, is earmarked for bolstering dnata's GSE fleet in Dubai. This strategic investment reflects dnata's anticipation of continued robust demand and substantial growth projections. Presently, dnata operates a fleet of 2,500 motorized GSE units across Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) airports, servicing an impressive roster of over 190 airlines.

These new GSE acquisitions will be sourced from eight leading international manufacturers, with deliveries commencing as early as May 2024.
