UPS adds over 200 flights to support Project Airbridge

UPS has added over 200 air freighter flights in April to support FEMA’s Project Airbridge and other healthcare-related missions. Project Airbridge is a public-private partnership to get vital and life-saving equipments to where it is needed with greater speed. These additional flights serve to meet the soaring demand to ship test kits, personal protective equipment and other supplies necessary for the global response effort. “With our scale and flexible global network, we are in a unique position to handle coronavirus response shipments for FEMA and healthcare customers,” said David Abney, UPS Chairman and CEO. “In these uncertain times, our customers depend on us more
than ever. Our employees are keeping America moving and meeting the urgent needs created by the pandemic.”
