United Parcel Service Inc. opened a second airport cargo-handling facility in India to capture soaring pandemic-driven demand for airfreight.

The 15,000-square-foot space in Bengaluru’s international airport will connect south India’s automotive, textile, defense and aerospace manufacturing hubs to parts of Asia, Europe and America, Deepak Shrivastava, managing director of UPS’s local unit, said in an interview. UPS will fly Boeing Co. 747-8 aircraft to Bengaluru, formerly known as Bangalore, five times a week and operate six weekly Delhi flights.
