NEW NON-STOP FLIGHT SPEEDS SHIPMENTS FROM U.S. TO THE MIDDLE EAST • Recently deployed Boeing 747-8F improves time-in-transit by one day to key destinations in Middle East, a gateway to Africa & the Indian subcontinent • Announcement follows news of UPS’s role as official logistics provider for Expo 2020 Dubai Louisville, USA/Dubai, UAE - 5 February, 2018 – UPS (NYSE:UPS) is launching a daily non-stop flight from its Worldport® global air hub in Louisville, KY., to Dubai, UAE, reducing time-in-transit between the United States and key destinations in the Middle East by a full business day. The flight, operated with one of UPS’s new 747-8F freighters, is part of the build out of UPS’s smart global logistics network and takes place as the company plans for its role as official logistics provider for Expo 2020 Dubai. “The UAE trades with all 50 U.S. states and has grown to become the U.S.’s largest export destination in the Middle East. Dubai’s importance as a global trade hub increases every day – and we’re now getting there a day faster with our small package express carrier and cargo offerings,” said Jim Barber, President, UPS International. “Growth potential is great for companies accessing the UAE and other rapidly developing industrial and commercial sectors in the region. Our new flight is another example of how UPS’s smart global logistics network, which carries three percent of the world’s GDP every day, constantly evolves to service increasing international trade demands.” At approximately 7,700 miles (12,400 km), the route is the longest regularly-scheduled flight UPS has ever operated, and is made possible by the new 747-8s, which offer greater payload over long range. The new flight is currently operating on a weekly basis and will become a daily flight on February 27th, operating Tuesday through Saturday. The new flight is part of plans to expand UPS’s presence in Dubai, the headquarters of UPS’s Indian Subcontinent Middle East & Africa (ISMEA) region, by establishing capacity, technology and staff capabilities to serve customers shipping to and through Dubai in the buildup to Expo 2020 and beyond. UPS has been operating in the region since 1989. “Our customers are demanding more capacity, and we’re providing it with this non-stop connection to Dubai,” said UPS Airlines President, Brendan Canavan. “UPS has made a strategic investment in 747-8 jumbo jets, the largest aircraft we have ever flown, to offer sustainable lift on long-range international routes like this.” The Louisville-Dubai flight leg is part of an “around-the-world” flight route that begins and ends at UPS Worldport in Louisville, KY. After arriving in Dubai, new package and freight volume is loaded onboard the aircraft before it departs for Shenzhen, China, home to UPS’ largest facility in Asia. U.S.-bound volume is then loaded in Shenzhen and the aircraft returns to Worldport via Anchorage, AK. With the addition of this new flight, the volume capacity on UPS’s current Cologne to Dubai flight increases to better serve the needs of customers connecting Europe to the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa. #UPS #Dubai #747

Great airplane and great company. If you want to read how amazing a company UPS is, check out the book "Big Brown." Hope to work for them someday.

I'm glad UPS invested in the 747-8 when everyone else was staying away from them. Never rode on a 747 before, maybe one day i'll get that opportunity on a foreign airline that still operates the queen of the skys.

787-8F can fly farther than 747-8F
airplanebuilderman (1 year ago)
747-8F CAN fly farther than a 787-8F cause there's no such beast as a 787-8F. 787-8F DOESN'T EXIST
Johnny Wynn (1 year ago)
Where did you get 787F from? Lmfao
InTeCredo (1 year ago)
No such a thing as 787F.

a 787 Dreamliner uses 35% less fuel then a plane built in the 70s. Most airlines don't even use them anymore cuz they cost 5 times more in fuel to operate then a newer plane.

nothing beats 747 with capacity.
Tylerdm (1 year ago)
Kevin Howard could have to do with the fact that the 747 has double the max take off weight....

Although the 787 may be more fuel efficient, for the types of operations they do, the -8 is obviously the better choice - thats why they chose it duh. Reasons include: amount of cargo, easy of loading, services available, etc...

Kevin Howard This isn't a 747-100, it's a 747-8 that came out in the 2010's, which is way more fuel efficient.

Aren't the airplanes air sealed or something? You wouldn't be able to breathe...

Believe me that would be more expensive. Look at the prices of UPS. They charged me 140 bucks (no express service) for mailing a watch from Chicago to Germany/Cologne

This plane will make you a lot of money UPS. Great choice!
Moonstruck Exploring (1 year ago)
My comment was not about the plane being the best choice, it was about idiots at UPS that actually made the choice, even though it was the only one truly available. My experience with UPS is that they are pretty much all idiots and that sort of thing can only be possible from the top down.

Moonstruck Exploring there isn’t much choice in this segment. Boeing has a monopoly in large cargo aircraft.

Im a bit surprised that UPS was that smart. Apparently they have a few good people.

Just so you know the 747-8 is not the -8 that is a turboprop aircraft, you have to refer to it by 747-8
The king Coder (1 year ago)
Tools In Action the 747-800 would be better because that model never came out
Tools In Action (1 year ago)
What if they confuse it with MS. Dash, its wither an airplane or spice. Personally I would of like the 747-800. Just like you call 744 a 400.
