DHL flights affected by daylight saving time?

Post by tjorndec » 12 Feb 2019, 17:41

Hello all,
I was wondering if DHL flights are affected by the change to daylight saving time? Maybe these flights (or at least the european) are then sheduled an hour earlier (utc time) to match with the local time to keep their sorting process on time? Or do they keep with utc times?

A bit complicated, but thanks for any reply!

Hi,

Daylight saving time from the USA is mostly a bother for Passenger carriers, specially on airport with Noise abatement procedures affecting early flights.

I dont believe DHL will change their operation due to this but their ground time will definately be altered until the time change in Europe in late march.

As an example, the Kalitta flights from CVG or BAH always have the same scheduled time of arrival at BRU, Winter or Summer.
