German SPIRIANT Opens Middle East Branch in DAFZA

25 June 2014

​Following an agreement with Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZA), German, SPIRIANT, LSG Sky Chefs' in-flight equipment subsidiary, a renowned provider of equipment solutions for airlines worldwide has officially opened its first office in the Middle East with the purpose of serving the rising demand for enhanced inflight services in the region.

The deal, which was signed with DAFZA, came after carefully searching for a location that would connect the Middle East and Africa with one of the world's leading inflight service equipment providers. This expansion is another milestone in the company's rapid development. SPIRIANT was launched as a new brand a little more than a year ago after considering market research findings, as well as the size and potential of this business segment.

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome SPIRIANT to Dubai. We truly appreciate their decision to choose DAFZA as the base for growing their activities in our region and beyond. At the same time, we wish them the best of luck and success in further developing their innovative business approach, said Nasser Al Madani, Assistant Director-General of DAFZA.

 

Alexander Spahn, SPIRIANT's Managing Director, said: "We chose Dubai Airport Freezone as our first address in the Middle East based on its proximity to our airline customers and the excellent infrastructure and business dynamics Dubai offers."

 

 "This strategic move will allow us to strengthen our relationship with customers and suppliers throughout the region and participate in its overall economic growth. It will also place us in a prime position as Middle Eastern and African carriers implement their expansion plans, added Spahn.
