UPS Airlines has launched a new service to Manila in the Philippines, using a McDonnell Douglas (MDC) DC-8 freighter. The service will be operated five times a week from UPS' Taipei cargo hub to Manila, en route to Singapore. The parcels-carrier's main competitor, FedEx, is to extend its Asian cargo network with the addition of four direct flights a week from the USA to Beijing and Shanghai. FedEx already flies an MDC DC-10 to Shanghai from its AsiaOne hub at Subic Bay in the Philippines.
