Utilising Boeing 767 freighters, Mexican freighter operator MasAir Cargo has commenced operations for global logistics service provider, DHL Express.
As part of an ACMI deal, the airline started operating a six-times-per-week service for the express firm from Los Angeles to Guadalajara and on to Ciudad de México, then returning to Los Angeles.
Ernesto Ramirez, Part of MasAir’s ACMI division leadership team said in a statement, “Everyone at MasAir and especially the ACMI division team is pleased to have gained the trust of a great company like DHL Express. This is a big step in achieving MasAir’s goal to position itself as the leading ACMI provider in the region.”
Jon Olin, Vice President Aviation, DHL Express Americas said, “We see MasAir as a great airline partner in Mexico and the Americas region and we look forward to MasAir’s high operational standards to serve our express customers, while meeting our own strict standards of safety and reliability.”
Through a deal with ATSG, DHL recently doubled its freighter fleet to two B767-300F aircraft.
Meanwhile, the carrier also has plans of operating services to Europe and has reportedly obtained a third-country operators certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
