DHL Express CEO: The era of sustainable aviation is here

The first-ever fully electric commuter plane “Alice” from Eviation Aircraft has successfully completed its maiden flight at Moses Lake, Washington, USA. DHL Express has invested in 12 Alice e-cargo planes to electrify its global aviation network.

Alice lifted off yesterday at 4:10 pm CEST from Grant County International Airport (MWH), flying for a total of eight minutes and reaching an altitude of 3,500 feet.

John Pearson, CEO DHL Express, says: “Our compliments to Eviation on the successful first flight of Alice! Completing its maiden flight confirms our belief that the era of sustainable aviation is here. With our order of 12 Alice e-cargo planes, we are investing towards our overall goal of net-zero emissions logistics. Alice’s range and capacity makes it a unique sustainable solution for our global aviation network, supporting our aspiration to make a substantial contribution in reducing our carbon footprint and ultimately, achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.”
