CHICAGO/MEXICO CITY: August 01, 2019. United Cargo has signed an interline agreement with Mexican cargo airline AeroUnion to provide its TempControl service at Mexico City International Airport (MEX) for pharma, healthcare and other temperature-sensitive commodities.

United says shipments destined for MEX can be tendered at any location in United Cargo's TempControl network for carriage to Los Angeles and transshipped to AeroUnion's daily widebody service to Mexico City.

AeroUnion Mexico City"We provide TempControl service in MEX via several daily narrowbody flights to and from five of United's US hubs," said Jan Krems, president of United Cargo. "But many TempControl customers advised us of their need for widebody connectivity to MEX. This new interline service provides customers shipping widebody freight to MEX with the same relentless focus on control and integrity and the same level of service excellence they rely on throughout our global TempControl network."

United Cargo has also announced the addition of five European and two US locations to its TempControl network -- increasing the number of certified stations worldwide to 75.

In Europe they are Athens, Naples, Prague, Venice and Segrate, Milan in addition to Malpensa and in the US Portland and Salt Lake City have been added.

Last month United reported net income of US$1.05 billion for Q2, 2019 – up from US$683 million in the same period last year. Operating revenue rose to US$11.4 billion from US$10.7 billion year-on-year. Echoing the results from other US legacy carriers as a result of an industry downturn, air cargo revenue fell from US$314 million to US$295 million for the period and from US$607 million to US$581 million for the half year.
