UPS adds 5 ôround the worldö flights via Singapore
UPS on Friday said it's starting a new 'around the world' flight this summer to enhance service between Singapore and growing markets in the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
The company said the new flight will improve pick-up times and provide more airlift in response to customers' demands. Customers shipping from Singapore to Europe and Mumbai, for example, will gain a later pick-up time of 8 p.m. each day.
Starting in July, UPS will operate five additional weekly frequencies that connect the globe using MD-11 aircraft. Each week, the aircraft will connect Singapore to major trading markets in Europe, the Middle East and the United States by flying from the company's European air hub in Cologne, Germany. From there, the flight connects to Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore and Mumbai. The flight also will connect to the company's international air hub in Louisville, Ky., from Cologne.
With UPS's 11 existing 'around the world' flights, the total number of worldwide flights now increases to 16 per week.
