United expands cargo-only operations to European markets
United announced that it is now offering cargo-only flights to additional international markets including Dublin, Paris, Rome, Santiago and Zurich. These markets add to United’s current services from the U.S. to Asia, Australia, Europe, India, Latin America and the Middle East.
These new routes will connect freight customers and further extend United’s air cargo network throughout the world – for example connecting major pharmaceutical hubs in Europe and perishable markets in Latin America.
"Air cargo continues to be more important than ever," says United Cargo, president, Jan Krems. "This network expansion helps our customers continue to facilitate trade and contribute to global economic development and recovery."
Since United began its programme March 19, it has completed more than 2,400 cargo-only flights, transporting over 77 million pounds of cargo. The airline has over 1,100 cargo-only flights scheduled for the month of June, operating between six U.S. hubs and over 20 cities all over the world.
