UPS has launched a new route from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport in Thailand to its intra-Asia hub in Shenzhen, China to boost international trade opportunities for businesses in Thailand.

This new route will be serviced by a Boeing 747-8. The aircraft will operate five days a week, from Monday to Thursday, and on Saturdays.

The new route means UPS customers in eastern and central Thailand can access faster delivery to more of the country’s top trade partners across Asia Pacific, as well as extended pickup cut-off times that provide greater flexibility for exports to customers in major economies worldwide. Meanwhile, import customers will also benefit from earlier delivery times that speed up production lines, inventory management and order processing, said UPS.

“Thailand has played a key role in UPS’s global growth strategy for well over 30 years and we know how important it is for our customers to have easy access to fast, consistent and stable air cargo capacity,” said UPS Thailand managing director Russell Reed.

“This flight connects UPS customers in Thailand’s industrial heartland to more of the country’s top regional trading partners faster than ever, offering more cross-border trade opportunities for businesses using UPS’s network and our industry-leading delivery services to other global destinations including Europe and the United States.”

UPS Asia Pacific president Michelle Ho added: “This is the third year in a row that UPS has introduced flights into our Asia Pacific network, after services to and from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in 2020, and to and from Osaka Kansai in 2021; this demonstrates our commitment to boosting global trade opportunities for businesses across the region.

“With more dedicated UPS flights into and out of Thailand, our customers can count on the reliability of the UPS network to help them capitalize on cross-border growth opportunities.”

Earlier this month, UPS opened a new airport gateway facility at Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru and added a new intercontinental flight from India using a Boeing 747-8F aircraft
