On the apron at Dresden International Airport, aircraft are handled professionally and promptly by the highly qualified personnel of the Dresden branch of PortGround GmbH. Like Flughafen Dresden GmbH, PortGround is a 100% subsidiary of Mitteldeutsche Airport Holding.

PortGround is able to handle all aircraft types in use worldwide according to international standards and procedures.
