DHL Express and Singapore Airlines partnership takes off with new Boeing freighter aircraft

Singapore to operate 5 Boeing 777Fs for DHL

DHL Express has welcomed the arrival of its new Boeing 777F freighter at Singapore Changi Airport.

The freighter, which sports a dual DHL-Singapore Airlines (SIA) livery, has a maximum capacity of 102 tons.

SIA will operate it on routes to the United States of America via South Korea thrice weekly from August 2022.

In March 2022, DHL Express and SIA signed a Crew and Maintenance agreement to deploy five Boeing 777F freighters. These freighters will be operated by SIA pilots, with the maintenance overseen by SIA.

The second Boeing 777 freighter is slated to enter into service in November 2022, following which both freighters will operate the Singapore-Incheon-Los Angeles-Honolulu-Singapore route six times weekly.

The remaining three freighters are planned for delivery throughout 2023.

Following this, all five freighters will operate on routes between the United States and Singapore via points in North Asia and Australia.
