“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. I’m proud of our team for mobilising our cargo-only flights programme that enables the shipment of critical goods that will support global economies.”
Since the airline began its programme on March 19, it has completed more than 2,400 cargo-only flights, transporting over 77 million pounds of cargo. It has over 1,100 cargo-only flights scheduled for the month of June, operating between six US hubs and over 20 cities all over the world.
