For the second year in a row, San Bernardino International Airport has a role in getting holiday presents and other precious cargo to online shoppers around the world.

UPS, which expects to deliver 750 million packages globally between Black Friday and New Year’s Eve, will again use the airport to transport shipments to its main air hub in Louisville and a regional air hub in Illinois.

To keep up with the growth of e-commerce and online shopping worldwide, the logistics company plans to run 18 flights per week out of San Bernardino, nearly quintupling last year’s number of weekly flights.

Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft will be used for the job.
