DSV extends direct services amid Coronavirus outbreak

DSV has announced the expansion of its Air Charter Network, introducing extra weekly inbound departures from Shanghai and a new Hong Kong-Luxembourg route.

DSV has announced that it will offer a direct service between Shanghai in China and Huntsville (AL) in the US.

Due to the risk of spreading of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), some airlines have either suspended or reduced the number of flights to and from Mainland China. As a consequence, there is an estimated 5,000 tonnes less capacity available per day.

As of Tuesday, February 25 DSV will operate a Boeing 747-8 freighter aeroplane three times per week, east and westbound, between Huntsville, Alabama in the US (HSV) and Shanghai (PVG) in China.

Taking advantage of the Huntsville hub, DSV can connect all continents via our DSV controlled charter network and ensure DSV ground handling at uncongested airports. In Huntsville, express connections are available to and from Latin-American countries and Canada.
