TNT Express has launched a dedicated freighter service between India and Europe.
The service will run five times a week between New Delhi and TNT’s European air hub in Belgium, with a stopover in Dubai on the way back to India.
The B767 freighter service has a weekly capacity of 210 tonnes.
Abhik Mitra, managing director of TNT India, said: “TNT India has been recording year-on-year growth of more than 20 per cent in India. The addition of a dedicated TNT freighter from India will enable our customers to become even more competitive due to faster factory-to-market lead times and improved efficiency.
“With the frequency of our service, it will now take just one day for shipments to reach Europe from New Delhi.”
TNT now operates flights to Europe from five strategic locations in Asia: New Delhi, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.
