Washington, D.C. – WEBWIRE

UPS® (NYSE: UPS), a global logistics provider and leading advocate for transportation infrastructure investment, applauds the bipartisan, bicameral efforts in Congress on aviation reauthorization, led in the Senate by Chairman John Thune (R-SD) and Ranking Member Bill Nelson (D-FL) and in the House by Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) and Ranking Member Peter DeFazio (D-OR).  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Bill of 2018 will provide long-term stability and advance aviation safety. 

“This legislation will deliver long-term funding for our aviation infrastructure that provides certainty and moves our aviation system towards modernization, limits unnecessary regulations, allows the system to accommodate expected growth, and improves safety and fuel efficiency,” said Jim Barber, Chief Operating Officer of UPS. “We urge the House and the Senate to pass this bill and move it to the President’s desk to be signed into law as soon as possible.”

UPS Airlines integrates small packages and heavy freight in its daily network of more than 500 aircraft and more than 2,200 flight segments that reach more than 770 destinations in over 220 countries and territories worldwide.
