In order to cater to the growing demand between Asia Pacific, the U.S. and Europe, DHL Express has enhanced its flight network in these countries, says reports.
With the new Boeing 777 freighters, the flight routes will offer close to 2,350 tons in total capacity every week, enabling DHL Express to expand its airfreight capacity and increase delivery speed, in response to an exponential growth in shipment volume, said a statement.
Operated by DHL Express’ partner airline Kalitta Air, one of the aircraft is flying five times a week from the United States to the DHL Express South Asia Hub in Singapore, via Sydney.
From Singapore, the aircraft will make stops in Hong Kong and Japan before returning to the U.S.. In addition, Kalitta Air will operate a new flight route that plies between Singapore and Sydney six times a week.
The other aircraft, operated by AeroLogic, the joint venture cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, will fly six times a week from Leipzig to Hong Kong and Singapore before making a stop at Bahrain and returning to Leipzig.
