DHL Express has entered into a Crew and Maintenance agreement (CM) with Singapore Airlines (SIA) to deploy five Boeing 777 freighters. This agreement marks a further step in DHL’s' expansion of its intercontinental air network amidst fast-growing international express shipping markets.
“With the deployment of five Boeing 777 freighters, we can expand our express service linking the Asia Pacific region with the Americas,” says Travis Cobb, executive vice president of global network operations and aviation at DHL. “Following Covid-19, we see good prospects for strong growth in trans-Pacific trade lanes.”
“By collaborating with Singapore Airlines, we see a unique chance to establish a long-lasting relationship with a long time partner who shares common values and operates at the highest standard,” he adds.
