DHL Air (D0, Nottingham East Midlands) will add its first Airbus aircraft, namely five converted A330-200(P2F)s on lease from CaixaBank. The deal marks the entry of the Valencian financial institution into the aircraft dry leasing market.

Between July 2022 and May 2023, the British carrier, owned by DHL Express, signed lease contracts for the five aircraft, M-WPCW (msn 1157), M-TGKG (msn 1544), M-PVDM (msn 1374), M-MPSD (msn 1408), and M-SVGS (msn 1338), according to UK Companies House records. The first two are ex-Singapore Airlines (SQ, Singapore Changi) stock, while the other three were previously operated by Thai Airways International (TG, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi). All five aircraft are currently under conversion at Dresden, the ch-aviation fleets module shows.

The airline did not disclose any delivery dates.

DHL Air currently operates five B757-200(SF)s, four B767-300ER(BCF)s, two B767-300ER(BDSF)s, four B767-300Fs, and five B777-200Fs. While most DHL-affiliated production carriers operate Boeing freighters, the group's largest airline, Germany's EAT Leipzig (QY, Leipzig/Halle), operates one A300-600F, twenty-two A300-600R(F)s, three A330-200Fs, and two A330-200(P2F)s.

CaixaBank recently agreed to co-finance the acquisition of five new-build E195-E2s for Binter Canarias (NT, Gran Canaria).
