United Cargo ups flight frequencies between US and military bases
United Cargo is increasing the frequency of cargo-only flights between the United States and military bases in various parts of the world — including Guam, Kwajalein, and several countries in Europe. Last week, the carrier operated a minimum of 40 cargo-only flights weekly — using Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft to fly freight and mail to and from US hubs and key international business and military locations.
“We are going above and beyond to find creative ways to transport fresh food and produce, as well as basic essentials from the US mainland to military and their families in Guam/Micronesia. On March 28, we operated an exclusive cargo-only B777-300 charter to transport nearly 100,000 pounds of food essentials to Guam to support our troops,” the carrier said in a statement.
In addition, the carrier moves mail year-round all over the world. In support of the military members and their families overseas, United Cargo has implemented a charter network, transporting military mail to Frankfurt, which is then transported all over Europe and the Middle East. The carrier has flown 30,000+ pounds of military mail every day between Chicago O'Hare (ORD) and Frankfurt (FRA). On the return flight from Frankfurt to Chicago, it carried an average of 35,000 pounds of mail to help families stay connected.
"Connecting products and mail to people around the world is the United Cargo mission," said United Cargo President Jan Krems. "Keeping our military families connected with the goods they need, and keeping them connected with loved ones to feel a sense of home, is of critical importance. As a company that has long supported our military families and veterans, our teams are proud to mobilize to lend a hand."
