First flight into Asia for DHL Air UK
DHL Express has introduced a new Hong Kong – Nagoya/Chubu – Cincinnati - East Midlands route. Operating its inaugural flight to Asia, DHL Air UK commenced the service on 26 June 2022.
Currently travelling three times a week, the dedicated B777F will double its frequency starting from 6 September 2022. This route offers up to 102 t of additional capacity per flight. It will serve transpacific customers along with the current five-weekly B747F flights by Polar Air Cargo Worldwide and five-weekly B777F flights by Kalitta Air.
Tony Khan (centre), president and representative director of DHL Express Japan: "The capacity expansion is in response to strong growth in international shipping demand from customers engaged in trade between Asia and USA, especially on the routes to and from Japan." (ah)
