Mallaghan, a global leader in the manufacturing of airport ground support equipment (GSE), has supplied three new Aircraft Washing Rigs and two new Carpet Cleaning Hi-Lifts to renowned air and travel services provider, dnata.

The investment by dnata in this state-of-the-art equipment will further enhance its cabin appearance service offering at Dubai International airport (DXB) and support its customers’ focus on cleanliness and hygiene upon emergence from the pandemic.

Owen McKenna, Sales Director at Mallaghan, said:

“The supply of this equipment further strengthens the relationship between Mallaghan and dnata which began with our first orders from the company back in the 1990s.

“Since then, Mallaghan has supplied a broad range of equipment to global dnata entities, including most recently a significant number of catering trucks to dnata catering for its operations in the UK and Australia.

“All at Mallaghan are extremely proud to have worked with dnata on delivering these specialist products for its Dubai operations and indeed in our ongoing partnership.”

Jaffar Dawood, dnata’s Senior Vice President for UAE Airport Operations, said:

“We are committed to achieving the highest standards while keeping safety and environment as top priorities. This new equipment will ensure that we continue providing efficient and high-quality aircraft cleaning services.

“Aircraft are returning to service, exterior and interior cleanliness are important considerations. Specifically, cabin carpet cleaning includes the added confidence of a thorough and hygienic hot water carpet clean, as per the Aircraft Manufacturers Manual, providing additional confidence to travellers as they return to the skies. This new technology has delivered very positive results in regards to carpet hygiene.”

Based on the proven design of its De-icers, and Hi-Lift Trucks, Mallaghan’s Aircraft Washing Rigs and Carpet Cleaning Hi-Lifts ensure the highest level of safety and quality.

All are mounted on MAN TGM Euro 5 chassis, supported locally by United Motors, part of Darwish Bin Ahmed & Sons Group.
