Two new Boeing 767 aircraft have been added to DHL’s US air freight service.
The Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), who already own 14 of the DHL domestic air craft fleet, have provided two additional 767-200 and 767-300 freighters as part of a short-term agreement. The deal was closed after another aircraft supplier decided to remove a considerable number of freighters from the DHL fleet.
Joe Hete, president and CEO of ATSG, stressed that “[ATSG] as DHL’s principal source of freighter airlift in North America, we will make every effort to support DHL’s future freighter aircraft requirements as they may develop in the future.”
The air freight services provider, DHL, and ATSG are said to be in discussions about a long-term agreement.
