The 5,000sqm workshop is equipped with new equipment and technology that will ensure continuous improvements in the safe and productive maintenance of the DXB bus fleet, enhancing serviceability and supporting smooth transport operations across the airport for passengers, crew and staff.
The workshop has been designed to maintain the fleet of nearly 200 passenger apron buses and over 100 staff transportation buses operated airside at DXB.
dnata’s new maintenance facility was inaugurated by Jaffar Dawood, dnata’s Senior Vice President for DXB Airline Services, alongside representatives from COBUS Industries.
“Our new facility meets the highest standards, helping us consistently deliver world-class safety and timely maintenance solutions for our customers,” remarked Dawood.
“These new technologies will significantly improve the working environment for the skilled dnata technicians maintaining these highly specialised vehicles,” said Robert Powell, Vice President dnata Technical Services.
“The excellent service of dnata was an important assistance in guaranteeing the highest reliability of our COBUS product,” commented Andreas Funk, CCO & Sales Director of COBUS Industries.
Choosing green or hybrid options is a prime consideration in dnata’s GSE fleet planning. Over the past years, the company has replaced a large number of its ramp vehicles, GSE and forklifts with hybrid or electric alternatives, cumulating in the first zero-emission aircraft turnaround in Dubai.
