United expands cargo-only flights to additional destinations

Getting vital goods, especially medical relief supplies, into the hands of the businesses and people who need them has never been more critically important. To meet the overwhelming demand, United began operating cargo-only flights on March 19.

Using Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft from United’s passenger fleet for this purpose, United have operated over 400 flights carrying more than 6 million kilos of cargo.

With the global community in need, we are doing everything we can to keep supply chains moving worldwide and support the battle against COVID-19,” said United Cargo President Jan Krems. “We’re proud to play an active role in connecting vital medical supplies like test kits and personal protective equipment with healthcare professionals around the world.

United are now operating more than 150 cargo-only flights per week between six U.S. hubs and 13 cities worldwide: CTU, HKG, PEK, PVG, SYD and TPE in the Asia Pacific; AMS, BRU, DUB, FRA and LHR in Europe; SJU in the Caribbean and TLV in the Middle East. United expect to add new cities soon and will continue to expand their cargo-only flights program.
