Both conditions have now been fulfilled. The warehouse, at Brucargo, is about to open, and a first client has been found. Dnata, which is issuing a call for candidates, will start with about 25 employees and hopes to increase that number quickly to 40 or 50, its CEO in Belgium and the Netherlands, Erik de Goeij, told Belga news agency.
A sister company of Emirates, dnata operates independently of the airline. At Brussels Airport it has a license for cargo flights exclusively. Cargo handling on passenger flights is licensed to Aviapartner and Swissport.
