New direct Oslo - Far East service
DHL has set up a new twice-weekly service to Seoul and Shanghai from Oslo. A B747-400F leased from Atlas Air will be deployed on the route.
Martin Langaas, director of cargo at Avinor, the owner and operator of Oslo airport: "For the past year, we have been working closely with DHL Global Forwarding to establish new flights that can serve the global demand for Norwegian seafood and bring the different regions in Norway closer to the world markets.
This has resulted in several new routes such as Lakselv and Seoul, increasing the competitiveness of Norwegian seafood exports."
Henk Venema, SVP and global head of network carrier management at DHL Global Forwarding, added: "This route will save our customers’ time on connections to South Korea, Shanghai and to the rest of DHL’s global network." (ah)
