UPS has launched direct flights from Hong Kong to Europe, enabling the company to offer next-day delivery coverage for both packages and heavy freight to Europe from Hong Kong.

With the addition of four direct flights, UPS now offers a total of 11 flights from Hong Kong to Europe each week. This gives companies in the region easier access and more options to conduct business with Europe.

The new daily direct flights will link Hong Kong with Cologne, Germany, Monday to Thursday using modern B747-400 aircraft. They will operate in addition to the seven flights that UPS already offers each week between Hong Kong and Cologne via Dubai.

The new service offers wide coverage across Europe reaching 34 countries with non-dutiable small package and letters service, and 18 countries with 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.
