A 250,000 sq ft warehouse at Heathrow, which will be used by dnata, has been granted planning permission by the London Borough of Hounslow.
The building which will be known as dnata City East, will complement dnata’s existing facilities in the area and will be used to handle the air-freight requirements of its key clients.
dnata City East represents one of the largest ever off-airport pre-lets at Heathrow. The facility will be located opposite the Heathrow Cargo Terminal, and adjacent to the Southern Perimeter Road.
AIPUT Fund Manager, Nick Smith, said: “This planning permission reinforces AIPUT’s position as one of the largest and most informed landlords around the airport, with the right property in the right place to serve the expanding air-freight related demand and logistics requirements.
“dnata’s investment represents a strong vote of confidence in the robustness of AIPUT’s real estate strategy and service to its key airport-related customers.”
