FedEx Express: These additional flights will empower our customers
FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., announced the launch of four new intercontinental flights originating from Asia Pacific (APAC).
The flights will provide improved connectivity, with weekly capacity of almost 1,400 tons (1,390,000 kgs), and greater access to APAC customers on the trans-Pacific, intra-Asia, and Europe lanes.
- The two trans-Pacific flights departing from the FedEx APAC Hub in Guangzhou, China, via Anchorage, U.S. to Oakland, U.S., and via Anchorage to Indianapolis and Memphis, U.S. and returning via Anchorage and Incheon, South Korea to Guangzhou five times a week, provide customers with enhanced connectivity and capacity between Southern China, North Asia and North America.
- The third trans-Pacific flight connects Beijing, the capital of China, to the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, U.S. This flight operates from Beijing via FedEx North Pacific Regional Hub in Osaka, Japan, and Anchorage, before arriving in Memphis, providing six extra connections to the U.S. from China every week.
- In addition, FedEx customers throughout the region benefit from additional connectivity and reliable capacity to Europe, with the Boeing 777 flights operating from the FedEx APAC Hub in Guangzhou, China, twice, and from the FedEx North Pacific Regional Hub in Osaka, Japan, thrice a week, to the FedEx Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Hub in Paris, France.
“FedEx is focused on meeting the evolving needs of our customers, and this network enhancement, further demonstrates our strong commitment to supporting our customers and this region to recovery. We are seeing the overall demand for exports from Asia Pacific fast recovering to pre-COVID levels,” said Kawal Preet, president of the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region at FedEx Express. “These additional flights will empower our customers to harness the full potential of cross-border commerce, forging stronger intra-Asia, trans-Pacific and Asia-Europe trade flows, as economies across Asia Pacific continue to rebound.”
FedEx currently operates around 200 weekly flights in and out of APAC to trans-Pacific and Europe, and connects APAC customers to the company’s extensive global network.
