DHL Express Expands MENA Air Carrier Fleet
In a boost to its Middle East operations DHL Express has added two new Boeing 767-300Fs to its MENA air fleet - increasing its overall load carrying capacity by almost 25%.
The 767s will enhance DHL Express' regional aviation network and improve its air capability to better support the region’s logistical demands.
The planes will be based out of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Richard Gale, Head, DHL Aviation Middle East and Africa said: “Investments in strengthening our MENA air network continue to form part of our wider strategy to enhance our capabilities in this region and better service high demand destinations with greater speed, reliability and efficiency, ultimately improving service.
“E-commerce is a key business driver for us and keeping on top of the shifts in world trade and how we adapt is very important.”
The two new Boeings will bring its total fleet size in the region to eight aircraft.
