Overview

History of DAS Handling

DAS HANDLING is a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Uganda and located at Entebbe International Airport. In 1996,DAS Handling Ltd was granted a self-handling concession by the Civil Aviation Authority. Over the years, Das Handling Ltd has built up a respectable operation and dedicated experience in ground handling at Entebbe International Airport.

As a result of this, and in further anticipation of growing business in the airline industry in East Africa, we have made substantial investments in ground handling equipment, infrastructure, quality management systems and safety procedures, .as well as in our 260 strong human resource capital.

Milestone

Up until 2002, this Airport ground handling service was under the monopoly of one handling company. However, after liberalization DAS Handling Ltd successfully bid for this service at Entebbe International Airport and was granted a five-year (renewable) Commercial Operator's license. Within a short time, while using its laid out infrastructure and equipment, DAS managed to provide quality passenger handling services to the flying public as part of its commitment to offering safe and efficient services to its clientele.
