UPS to fly non stop from US to Dubai

[ February 5, 2018   //   ]

UPS is to launch a daily non-stop flight 747 freighter flight from its Louisville, Kentucky hub to Dubai as part of its role as official logistics provider for Expo 2020 Dubai. The express carrier says it will improve transit time from North and South America to key destinations in the Middle East by a full business day. The route is the longest regularly-scheduled flight UPS has ever operated, and is made possible by its new 747-8s, which offer greater payload over long range.
