UPS launches direct flights from Hong Kong to Europe

UPS has launched direct flights from Hong Kong to Europe, allowing next-day delivery coverage for packages and heavy freight.

The new flights provide a direct service four days per week, and make a total of 11 flights from Hong Kong to Europe each week.

Wolfgang Flick, president of UPS Europe said: “The new direct flights significantly reduce the transit time between Hong Kong and Europe, providing European businesses that import from Asia a faster and more efficient option.”
The new service covers 34 European countries for the non-dutiable small package and letters service, and 18 countries for the dutiable small package service. 

With the UPS express freight service, shipments can be delivered in one day to 18 countries and 39 cities across Europe, including Paris, Milan, Prague, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona and Copenhagen.
