How our air charters work in APAC
The Air Charter Network uses leased and chartered aircraft to guarantee capacity. It is optimized for handling priority and express air charters, and special shipments.
DSV is positioning its charter network to support customers’ needs for space with 100% controlled capacity. There are eight regular air charter services to and from APAC: Dragon Wings, Hong Kong Star, Panda Star and Pacific Rim.
Hong Kong Star offers services connecting Hong Kong and Europe via three different routes: 1) Hong Kong-Budapest-Liege, 2) Hong Kong-Madrid-Liege and 3) Hong Kong-Liege-Madrid. Via the first route, our chartered aircraft flies from Hong Kong every Monday for Budapest and then fly to Liege. Via the second route, our chartered aircraft flies from Hong Kong every Wednesday for Madrid and then fly to Liege. The third route is a flight departs from Hong Kong every Friday for Liege, then fly to Madrid.
All cargo arrives at Liege Airport will then be trucked to our Luxembourg gateway (LUX) for devanning and distributed to destinations in other parts of Europe. Our gateway in Luxembourg can also consolidate cargo from the rest of Europe for the return trip to Hong Kong. When cargo arrives in Hong Kong, distribution can be done by trucks to other locations in South China such as Shenzhen, Dongguan, Guangzhou and Zhongshan.
Panda Star operates a round-trip service twice a week to deliver your goods directly from Shanghai to Luxembourg on every Wednesday and Sunday. Door-to-door delivery to the final destination can be done via our trucking network.
Cargo from origins in Central and North China can be picked up by trucks and delivered to our Shanghai gateway.
Pacific Rim offers two direct departures a week from Macao to Mexico every Tuesday and Wednesday. This unique service connects Latin America with South China. Goods bound for other Latin America countries can be transhipped via Mexico by connecting flights or trucks.
Our charter options
We use two main options for moving goods through its Air Charter Network: Whether you require whole aircraft or part-charters, we can make arrangement on both a scheduled and ad-hoc basis. Building on its large presence at Luxembourg Findel Airport, DSV has an agreement with some of the largest cargo-only airlines in the world, ensuring quality and reliability every step of the way.
