Winnipeg Airports Authority Welcomes Increased DHL Service

WINNIPEG, MB – September 6, 2017 – Winnipeg Airports Authority is pleased to announce DHL, a world postal and logistics leader, is expanding service to Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Starting September 5, 2017 DHL will connect Winnipeg to its hub in Cincinnati, Ohio with daily weekday service using a B737-400F aircraft.

“This increase in service from a global leader like DHL is just further validation of Manitoba’s growing economy” said Barry Rempel, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority. “WAA is continuing to invest in our cargo operation to attract new business, drive economic growth and support jobs in our region.”

DHL had been servicing the Winnipeg market with a smaller aircraft, connecting through Minneapolis. This new direct route to DHL’s Cincinnati hub and larger aircraft means Winnipeg now has faster DHL service.
