DHL launches London helicopter service


DHL Express has launched London’s first ever scheduled helicopter delivery service – making it the third such helicopter service to be introduced into the DHL aviation network, following successful launches of services in New York and Los Angeles.

Beating congestion, DHL’s new helicopter service will enhance the connection between key financial centres in the US and the UK, in particular. It will guarantee next day delivery of urgent documents from New York, Boston and Chicago to London’s financial district, reducing the transit time to just one day.

With a daily flight connection from DHL’s Heathrow Hub to the centre of London, the helicopter will bypass traffic and cut the journey time into Canary Wharf and the City of London by up to one hour. A DHL Express courier will meet the helicopter, providing final mile deliveries to financial services, consulting and legal businesses.
