By Damian Brett

Mesa Air Group has signed a letter of intent to lease an additional Boeing 737-400F cargo aircraft.

The extra aircraft will be available in May and adds to the two B737-400F aircraft it currently operates for DHL.

“This 737-400F will be a great addition to the cargo fleet. The investment in a third 737 aircraft demonstrates our focus on cargo operations and our commitment to DHL,” said Brad Rich, chief operating officer. “This aircraft will provide Mesa pilots with additional career advancement opportunities and provide flexibility to better meet the demands of the current cargo environment.”

Mesa Air Group began operating freighters for DHL Express last year.

Mesa Airlines is a regional air carrier providing scheduled passenger and cargo service to 114 cities in 39 states, the District of Columbia and Mexico, the Bahamas, Canada, and Mexico as well as cargo services out of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

As of January 31, 2021, Mesa operated a fleet of 160 aircraft with approximately 393 daily departures.

Mesa operates all of its flights as either American Eagle, United Express, or DHL Express.
