Southern Air Holdings – the first and only ACMI operator to fly the B777F – has announced the addition of two B777Fs to its fleet. With these additions, Southern Air will operate four B777F aircraft, the world’s largest and most advanced twin-engine freighter. Southern Air has taken delivery of its third B777F and will take delivery of its fourth on 25 April from Boeing.
The new aircraft will be immediately inducted into DHL Express and utilised by DHL for its new round-the-world service from Hong Kong to Los Angeles to Leipzig, Germany, and back to Hong Kong. Southern Air’s first two B777Fs have flown the Cincinnati-Bahrain-Hong Kong routes for DHL since September 2011.
