Blended Winglets save up to 1 million liters of fuel and 3,150 tons of CO2 per annum and support the implementation of GoGreen strategy

DHL, the world’s leading express company, is announcing the introduction of the Boeing 767 Extended Range Freighter aircraft into its own air fleet, with the first commercial flight having left Leipzig (LEJ) airport for the John F. Kennedy International Airport on September 22. Operated by DHL Air (UK), a total of six Boeing 767ERF will help DHL to further boost the company’s on-time performance and reliability of its transatlantic services. The aircraft will replace the shared capacity of MD-11F aircraft currently provided through a joint venture with Lufthansa Cargo.

Transatlantic trade has been at a continuously high level in recent years, with EU-U.S. and U.S.-EU trade flows reaching a value of US$347 billion and US$288 billion respectively in 2008. For DHL Express, this trade lane has been of particular importance. The company’s volumes in the transatlantic air express market remained at a high level during the recent economic crisis and are expected to increase when the global economy has fully recovered.

With a payload capacity of 59 tons and a maximum range of 6,025 kilometers, the B767ERF aircraft is widely recognized as one of the most modern mid-range wide body freighters currently available. It is ideally suited for direct flights between East Midlands (EMA), United Kingdom, and Cincinnati (CVG) and New York (JFK), USA, as well as between DHL Express’ major European hub Leipzig (LEJ), Germany, and New York (JFK), USA. These flights will further improve the international connectivity of the U.S. network and enable the company to expand its next day Time Definite transatlantic services between the U.S. East Coast and Europe. DHL is the first company to register this aircraft type in Europe, following certification through the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Due to its advanced engine technology and the winglets provided by Aviation Partners Boeing, the 767ERF stands out as one of the most efficient and environmental friendly aircraft of its class. The winglets will save approximately 4% of fuel. With the Boeing 767ERFs the company expects to save about 3,500-4,000 liters (approx. 1,000 US gallons) of fuel on a typical trip from the EU to the U.S. and return. Calculated for all six B767ERF aircraft on the transatlantic route, five times a week, 52 weeks a year, this would amount to fuel savings of approximately 6,000,000 liters of fuel per year. Apart from its excellent fuel efficiency, the B767ERF also shows very good CO2 efficiency figures. With winglets, it emits around 3,150 tons of CO2 less annually than without them. In comparison to the MD-11F aircraft, which has previously been used on DHL’s transatlantic routes, the B767ERF uses 53% less fuel per trip and produces 53% less CO2. With such characteristics, the B767ERF plays a significant role in Deutsche Post DHL’s global GoGreen strategy, which foresees an improvement of the group’s carbon efficiency by 30 percent by the year 2020, also to be achieved by re-fleeting measures.

Charlie Dobbie, Executive Vice President, Express Network Operations and Aviation, DHL Express, said: “By introducing the Boeing 767ERF into our own DHL air fleet, we are following our smart technology approach, which aims at achieving high efficiency gains through the use of the most modern technology available, wherever possible. Furthermore, operating this highly reliable new aircraft type on our transatlantic routes proves that we are serious about further improving our capabilities for U.S. in- and outbound international express services. Moreover, the aircraft’s efficiency also enables us to maintain a very competitive offer and implement our group-wide GoGreen strategy.”

DHL’s reactivated facilities at Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati International Airport (CVG) will form the main U.S. hub for transatlantic shipments. CVG is a fully automated state-of-the-art facility that will be considerably more cost effective for the company’s international business than its previous hub. DHL customers will also benefit from the newly established U.S. Quality Control Center, also located at CVG, which monitors shipment movements across the U.S. and redirects shipments to prevent delays.
