Following the acquisition of Star Handling earlier in the year, this acquisition continues Skytanking’s service expansion into ground handling, passenger services, deicing, cargo handling, and related aviation services.

Dalcross provides ground handling, deicing, lav and water services, transportation, fuel services, catering, cargo, baggage, and freight forwarding services at Aberdeen and Inverness airports. In addition, the company operates Highland Jet Centre Limited which provides private jet refueling at Inverness airport.

Dalcross will continue to operate under its current brand during the integration process but will ultimately operate under the Skytanking brand. Highland Jet Centre will continue operating under its current brand at this time.
