DB Schenker has expanded its air charter operations. It has launched a new Global Flight Operations Program that would connect Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou and Hong kong to Chicago and Frankfurt ten times a week with exclusive full charter flights.
While scheduled air freight capacity remains highly impacted due to international passenger flight cancellations, this new offering creates reliable cargo options for DB Schenker’s customers exporting from China. The program follows earlier full charter operations, such as DB Schenker’s COVID-19-Airbridge.
Martin Habisreitinger, Vice President- Airfreight, DB Schenker Greater China said, “In China, the majority of the manufacturers have recovered to normal. With the Covid-19-pandemic still not under control worldwide, we do not expect passenger flights and belly capacity to return to the market within the next 12 months. The instability and insufficient supply within the capacity market have become a bottleneck for our customers.”
The Global Flight Operations Program connects Shanghai and Frankfurt 3 times a week, Beijing and Frankfurt once per week, Zhengzhou and Frankfurt once per week, Hong Kong to Frankfurt twice per week and Shanghai to Chicago three times per week with our exclusive full charter flights. In addition to these regular exclusive full charter flights, DB Schenker also provides partial charter flights, connecting Hong Kong to Frankfurt twice a week, Hong Kong to Los Angeles three times per week and Hong Kong to Chicago once per week.
