New freighters enhance FedEx offer

[ April 4, 2012   //   ]

FedEx Express is introducing four 757’s to enhance the next-business-day service between eight major European airports, including Birmingham in the UK.

They offer next-business-day services to FedEx Express customers in Oslo and significantly improve services for customers in Sweden, Finland, UK and the Netherlands, with faster transits and extended cut-off times. Shipping times are also set to improve in and out of the Birmingham, Helsinki and Stockholm areas.

Managing director of UK FedEx Express Operations, Will Martin, said: “By bringing four Boeing 757s into Northern Europe to operate these pivotal routes, we are underlining our ongoing commitment to the growth of our presence in Europe, We are continually enhancing our services to give European customers unrivalled performance and coverage—the introduction of these aircraft offer them more time to prepare packages and get them to their destinations in the fastest time possible.”

The new planes also offer improved fuel efficiency and reduced noise and they will allow FedEx to eliminate two slower feeder services operated by smaller regional aircraft as well as an Airbus A300.
