The airport celebrated the first UPS-operated 747 flight to the airport earlier this week, in a Tweet.

UPS’ initial plans call for six weekly flights into Delhi. Multiple aircraft types will be utilized, including 747s, both the –400 and –8F variants, to connect Delhi to UPS’ European air hub in Cologne (CGN). UPS will also operate 767s on a Delhi-Dubai-Cologne route.
With the new flights, UPS said customers will now have options for extended pickup times, later commercial clearance and reduced time-in-transit for shipments. The flights are part of UPS’ broader strategy to enhance service to growing markets in the Indian subcontinent, Africa and the Middle East.1 - Reader Likes This Post
