The closure of many airports and grounding of airline fleets globally has had a profound impact on ground handling agents, threatening the existence of many.
In order to counter the commercial threat facing their business and meet emerging demands as air carriers slowly recover, Emirates handling agent, dnata, is implementing a COVID-19 surcharge effective 9th April 2020 @ GBP 0.04 per kilo – GBP 8.00 minimum, applicable to all import and export cargo handled at all dnata UK stations.
