DHL Express has placed an order for six additional 777 Freighters with Boeing. The purchase takes DHL Express’ order book total to 28 777 Freighters since it placed its first direct order in 2018.
“With the order of six new, large, wide-body freighter aircraft, we continue to invest in our future and further enhance the capability and reach of our global air network. The Boeing 777 Freighter is the most fuel-efficient aircraft in its class and will connect DHL’s global hubs in Cincinnati, Leipzig and Hong Kong as well as serving other key markets,” said Geoff Kehr, Senior Vice President, Global Air Fleet Management, DHL Express.
The 777 Freighter improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions by 17% compared to legacy airplanes. DHL Express has taken delivery of 15 777 Freighters to date.
