United Cargo: A Dream of Eagles
United Cargo A Dream Of Eagles

United Cargo helps military families stay connected with increased frequency
of cargo-only flights between the United States and military bases in various parts of the world, including Guam, Kwajalein, and several countries in Europe.
     Last week as we reported here, United began operating a minimum of 40 cargo-only flights weekly using Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft to fly freight and mail to and from U.S. hubs and key international business and military locations.

Honoring Those Who Serve

     United is going above and beyond to find creative ways to transport fresh food, produce, and basic essentials from the U.S. mainland to military and their families in Guam/Micronesia.
     Just last weekend on Saturday, March 28, a cargo-only B777-300 charter transported nearly 100,000 pounds of food essentials to Guam to support U.S. troops.

Moving Tails To Deliver The Mail

     It should come as no surprise that United also moves its tail to move the mail.
     Military members and their families overseas benefit from United’s inventive charter network, which transports military mail to Frankfurt, then on to all over Europe and the Middle East.
     Since March 20, United has flown 30,000+ pounds of military mail every day between Chicago O'Hare (ORD) and Frankfurt (FRA). The backhauls from Frankfurt to Chicago carry an average of 35,000 pounds of mail to help families stay connected.

A Dream of Eagles

     “Connecting products and mail to people around the world is the United Cargo mission,” confides United Cargo President Jan Krems.
     “We do our part keeping U.S. military families connected with the goods they need and keeping them connected with loved ones to feel a sense of home. It is of critical importance.
     “As a company that has long supported our military families and veterans, our teams are proud to mobilize to lend a hand.”
