DHL Express has placed a firm order for nine B767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF).
The additional freighters will help expand DHL’s long-haul intercontinental fleet in response to increased global demand for cargo capacity.
The order was disclosed at the Dubai airshow.
Geoff Kehr, senior vice president, global air fleet management, DHL Express, said: “The additional B767 freighters are part of our efforts to modernize DHL’s long-haul intercontinental fleet in order to fly eco-friendlier and more cost-efficiently.”
DHL has taken delivery of seven of a batch of eight 767-300BCF, that have been leased to DHL partner airlines in the Middle East and Latin America to support its expanding regional networks.
The B767-300BCF can carry up to 51.6 tonnes up to 6,190 km.
