DHL has launched two new direct flights from its hub in Hong Kong to Chengdu, China and from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, as the latest enhancements to its Asia air network.

DHL’s new Hong Kong to Chengdu route will ensure evening pick-up, and next-day delivery for shipments to Chengdu and other economic centers in Southwestern China,such as Chongqing, Kunming and Guiyang, the express operator said. This route is operated in cooperation with Yangtze River Express Ltd., a Chinese all-cargo airline, via a B737-300F freighter with a frequency of five times per week.

High value and formal export shipments, dependent upon customs clearance, will also benefit from a previously unavailable same-day uplift service, according to DHL.
