SIA to operate 5 Boeing 777 freighter planes in partnership with DHL

The first Boeing is set to be delivered by July 2022.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be operating additional 5 Boeing 777 freighter planes in partnership with DHL Express under their crew and maintenance agreement.

The freighters, which will sport a dual DHL-SIA livery, will be based at the Changi Airport in Singapore.

"This will further reinforce Singapore’s position as a key air cargo and e-commerce logistics hub, contributing to its growth and development," SIA said in a statement.

They will be operated by SIA's pilots on routes to the USA via points in North Asia. SIA will also oversee the maintenance of these aircraft.

The first aircraft delivery will be in July 2022, with the second being in October 2022. The remaining aircraft are planned for delivery throughout 2023.

"By collaborating with Singapore Airlines, we see a unique chance to establish a long-lasting relationship with a long time partner who shares common values and operates at the highest standard," commented Travis Cobb, EVP, Global Network Operations and Aviation, DHL Express.

“This new freighter operation will support the fast-growing e-commerce segment, in addition to other key business segments that rely on trusted express services that DHL excels in providing. It also provides a foundation on which the partnership between SIA and DHL can be further expanded in the future. Basing these freighters at Changi Airport will further reinforce Singapore’s position as a key air cargo and e-commerce logistics hub, contributing to its growth and development,” said Lee Lik Hsin, EVP, SIA.
