Update: February, 24/2020 - 10:33

  • First delivery of 2020 batch accomplished, recent 777F touched down at its operational home base Cincinnati last Thursday
  • DHL continues strengthening its intercontinental network by renewal of its long-haul aircraft fleet
  • State-of-the-art aircraft also supports the Group's goal of improving its carbon footprint


BONN, GERMANY / CINCINNATI, US - Media OutReach - February 24, 2020 - DHL Express, the world's leading international express service provider, is receiving six new Boeing 777F-200 cargo aircraft this year. The first of these planes to come in 2020 landed last Thursday at its future base of operations, the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). In 2018 DHL ordered 14 new Boeing 777F, with four delivered in 2019, six to come this year and the remaining four to be taken into service in 2021. The current freighter will be operated by DHL Express' partner airline Kalitta. The renewal is part of the overall modernization of the long-haul intercontinental fleet of the courier company and replaces older planes. The Boeing 777F is equipped with top-of-the-line fuel-efficient technology and features the longest range at full payload of any widebody freighter aircraft.  This allows DHL to operate with higher efficiency while meeting the increasing global demand for express logistics service.
