MANAMA: DHL Express has added two Boeing 767-300F aircraft to its Mena air fleet.

The company said the planes will be based at its regional headquarters in Bahrain, and give it greater operational efficiency and capacities to meet the surge in customer demand.

The new aircraft will increase DHL’s overall load capacity by more than 25 per cent, servicing existing high-demand lanes across the GCC, Middle East, Africa and Indian Subcontinent.

“In the past six years, in addition to almost doubling DHL Aviation touch points and boosting international flights to over 175 per week, we have consistently increased load capacities to vital trade links such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, East Africa and on our Asian lanes amongst others, to support the growing logistics needs of our clients for better cross-regional and global connectivity,” DHL Aviation Middle East and Africa head Richard Gale said.

The two new Boeings will complement DHL’s existing fleet of 767-200SFs operating in the region, bringing its total fleet size to eight aircraft, while helping to significantly improve fuel efficiency and decrease CO2 emissions.
