Mail on commercial flights?


#1

Would UPS or FedEx mail ever be cared on commercial flights Ex: Southwest, Frontier?

Isn’t that why there’s a U.S flag on the tail?


#2

Yes. Mail is carried on commercial flights. It doesn’t fly for free because of it being a US flagged carrier, either.

Don’t know about FedEx but I do know UPS uses other airlines for freight. Quite a bit of the freight out of the far east is carried by EVA, Qantas, Cathay Pacific, etc.

By the way, UPS and FedEx are both commercial airlines. I believe you meant to say passenger and other cargo airlines.
