UPS Virtual Presents: Project Airbridge

We are proud to sponsor and host this unique event. Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, we operate flights to over 220 countries - the most of any airline company in the world. Our Louisville Worldport hub is a 5.2 million square foot state of the art processing center that is entirely painted in white to make sure it can remain efficiently air conditioned. Want a fun fact? If you were to take a leisurely walk around it, you would walk over 5 miles. At UPS Virtual, we believe in a pilot system that gives you the freedom to fly where you want and how you want. We offer no restrictions on routes so long as you depart or arrive at one of our many hubs located all over the world. You are also free to choose any UPS aircraft with the exception of our Corporate fleet aircraft which are reserved for pilots who have attained the ATP Captain rank status. We hope this gives you all a taste of what it’s like to fly for our prestigious VA.

The Mission

Following in the footsteps of the real life UPS Airlines, UPS Virtual will be simulating Project Airbridge in assistance of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to, with the help of IFATC, simulate a real world fly out from KSDF. What is Project Airbridge and how are we helping? See below!

Led by FEMA and the White House Coronavirus Taskforce, Project Airbridge is a partnership between UPS and large U.S. healthcare distributors including Cardinal Health and others, and the U.S. federal government. UPS is providing air freight brokerage services on third-party aircraft, as well as on UPS-owned aircraft. Goods will be distributed at the direction of FEMA to hospitals and COVID-19 hot spots throughout the country.

This is part two of a multistage effort that’s underway to get supplies to those areas that are in desperate need amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Simulating a fly out from our enormous Worldport hub in Louisville, Kentucky, our cargo will include masks, surgical gowns, gloves, medical swabs and thermometers. We will be delivering over 3 million pounds of essential supplies.

UPS’s Healthcare division opened a new 450,000 square-foot healthcare distribution center on April 4, with dedicated space for FEMA. The facility is located just a few miles from UPS Worldport. With that proximity, UPS has the ability to quickly fulfill orders for delivery overnight, anywhere in the U.S. We will be doing a lot of flying for this event!

We have already flown a vast amount of supplies into Louisville Worldport and are now requesting a helping hand from the entire IFC community in distributing to other U.S. cities hardest hit by this deadly disease.

We want to extend our sincere condolences to all those who have been gravely affected by this disease and offer our upmost gratitude to those heroes working the front lines during this unprecedented time.

Special Thanks!

We would like to thank IFATC for the opportunity to have such a special event that resembles real world operations that are currently underway. We look forward to the great service that will be provided and are excited to see our Worldport hub come alive.

We would also like to extend a special thanks to IFAE & @IFAE_GLOBAL_AIRFORCE for assisting us in the critical Phase 1 which was conducted as a UPSV internal event to bring supplies from Asia, Central America, Europe and as far north as Alaska. As always, we value our partnership and the ability to work together for important events such as these.
