UPS Airlines launches flights to Delhi with freighters, including 747F

UPS Airlines has commenced flight operations at Delhi Airport (DEL) to cater to growing express opportunities in Northern India, UPS told Air Cargo World. 

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.
