Seasonal Cargo Flight Resumes with United Parcel Service
United Parcel Service (UPS) resumed its busy peak-demand flight to Fargo for the sixth consecutive holiday season. The daily flight will begin on November 21 and run until December 24.
For the second year, UPS is operating the route with a Boeing 757-200F. The 757 can carry a payload of 88,000 pounds with a maximum takeoff weight of 272,500 pounds. UPS started the seasonal service in 2000 with a Boeing 727. The cargo jet will arrive at Hector International Airport at approximately 7:00 a.m. each morning and depart for Des Moines and then its Louisville cargo hub at 8:45 p.m.
This seasonal air cargo flight is added to better serve the Fargo/Moorhead area during the busy holiday package season.
