Dubai demand sees Schenker double capacity
15 / 04 / 2008
TEN months after the start of round-trip air services from Dubai to Toledo, Ohio via Frankfurt-Hahn, Schenker AG is doubling capacity on this route. Owing to massive demand, a second flight has now been introduced.
In addition to the airplane that flies from Dubai to Toledo and back every Saturday, a few days ago a second aircraft was put into service, starting its round trip in Dubai every Wednesday.
“Our experience over recent months has shown that the service we offer represents an interesting solution for the increasingly complex supply chains of the electronics, automotive, mechanical engineering and apparel industries,” said Dr Thomas Lieb, member of the board of management of Schenker AG, responsible for global air and ocean freight.
DB Schenker’s regular round trip flights from Dubai to Toledo, Ohio via Frankfurt-Hahn, have been linking markets in Asia, Europe and the US since last June.
