dnata has named Clive Sauvé-Hopkins as its new Global Head of Airport Operations, or Divisional Senior Vice President (DSVP), Airport Operations, given that the press release states two differing titles. Nevertheless, he will be responsible for the supervision of dnata’s ground handling and cargo businesses at 97 airports across 16 countries. Working out of Dubai, UAE, and reporting to Steve Allen, CEO at dnata Group, he will be managing a team of more than 37,000 “customer-centric aviation professionals”, who ensure that over 330 airlines are handled properly, according to their contracted operations.

Strating out with a military and administrative background, Clive came to the air cargo industry in 2009, and has amassed extensive international experience in commercial strategy and business transformation, working for several large names such as Swissport, Servisair, Aviapartner, Qatar Airways, and, most recently, the Abu Dhabi Developmental Holding Company (ADQ) where he held the position of Chief Transformation Officer.

Steve Allen commented: “I’m pleased to have Clive on board our global management team. Clive has all the experience and skills to drive our growth strategy and ensure consistent quality and safe services, with a continued focus on people and sustainability across our global operations. I look forward to working together as we enhance our business and offering.”

On 18APR24, it inaugurated a new office at Terminal 3 of Rome Fiumicino airport (FCO) – part of a multi-million euro investment, of which more than €20 million are going into purchasing advanced ground support equipment (GSE) at the airport. Alberto Morosi, CEO of Airport Handling, said: “The opening of our new office marks an important milestone, underscoring our commitment to commencing services in Rome as soon as possible. We will continue our long-term investments in team, infrastructure, and equipment as we establish operations at the airport. We look forward to providing our world-class services to our existing and new customers at another major Italian aviation hub.” And it announced on 26APR24, that it had renewed its contract with Air Arabia in Switzerland, to handle the airline’s weekly flight from Casablanca to Geneva.
