Bangalore: Logistics major DHL announced on Tuesday the launch of Boeing 777F-200 freighter service between Bangalore and Leipzig, which is the company's European hub. The new service, originating in Bangkok and Singapore, is to operate five days a week. The new freighter will be operated by Aerologic, a joint venture cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo.
Malcolm Monteiro, Senior Vice-President and Area Director, South Asia, DHL Express, said the direct connectivity would result in improved transit times. He said DHL Express was committed to investing in infrastructure in India and double the “dedicated air network capacity of DHL” in the country. “South India is an important region in the country's economy and the launch of the freighter at Bangalore is a key step towards facilitating growth in this region,” he said.
R. S. Subramanian, Country Head, DHL Express India, said the freighter, with a capacity of 100 tonnes, would serve key markets in Europe and India, especially textiles, automotive and leather industries. The service would also result in better connectivity between markets in South India and key Asian markets, he added.
