FedEx, UPS, DHL Into Africa?

Sun Apr 17, 2005 12:45 pm

While FedEx, UPS and DHL so serve points in Africa through partnership with other airlines (ie airline companies), do they actually fly their own metal into African cities? If so, which ones into which cities (from which city), on which types of aircraft?

Anywhere to get their schedules?

UPS does not fly it's own aircraft into Africa.

DHL operates a 757PF to ACC and LOS to serve West Africa.
From there a feeder net of B727, ATR and Cessna's operates.
West Africa is served using commercial uplift or block space into NBO and EBB where a feeder fleet again of ATR and Cessna's are used.
Southern Africa the same. Commercial/block space and B727, ATR & Cessna feeders.

DHL operate a B757F or A300F most mornings from Brussels to Accra and Lagos.
When the Xmas BRU strike was on a TF- registered A310F flew EMA>Africa each morning.

There is also a DHL B72F in Abidjan (ABJ) + 1 ATR 42 + 3 or 4 Cessna Caravan.

The B72F is registered in Spain, the ATR and the Cessna in South Africa.

The Cessna's are flying during the night to Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal. The pilots are South African.
