DHL Express And Singapore Airlines Partnership Takes Off With New Boeing Freighter Aircraft

The latest Boeing 777 freighter from DHL Express, the top international express service provider in the world, has touched down at Singapore Changi Airport. The freighter has a 102-ton carrying capacity and is liveried in both DHL and Singapore Airlines (SIA) livery. From August 2022, SIA will operate it three times per week on routes to the United States of America via South Korea.

Our global DHL Express aviation network consists of a combination of owned and partner airlines, which allows us to respond to increasing customer demand with agility and flexibility. The new Boeing 777 freighter demonstrates our ongoing effort to strengthen our network and adjust flight routes, as well as lower our carbon emissions to achieve greener logistics.

Air cargo also plays a vital role in keeping global supply chains open. Apart from supporting the fast-growing e-commerce segment, this new freighter operation provides a foundation to expand the partnership between SIA and DHL in the future. The airplane, which is capable of carrying a maximum payload of 102 tonnes, will deliver superior tonne-per-mile economics for DHL and Singapore Airlines as they look to sustainably address increased demand in the global air freight market.

After the second Boeing 777 freighter goes into service in November 2022, both freighters will fly six times per week on the route between Singapore and Incheon, Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Singapore. Delivery of the final three freighters is anticipated to take place throughout 2023. After that, all five freighters will fly on routes connecting the US with Singapore through Australia and North Asia.
