DHL Air UK is a cargo airline based in Hounslow, United Kingdom. It is wholly owned by Deutsche Post World Net and provides services on the group's DHL-branded parcel and express network in Europe. Its main base is East Midlands Airport.
The company was formed as Elan Air in October 1982 and became DHL Air in August 1989. Elan Air operated night freight charters for DHL using the Armstrong Whitworth Argosy and Handley Page Dart Herald. Later the airline acquired Merchantman freighter versions of the Vickers Vanguard and was operating three when it became DHL Air in 1989.
