FedEx Express has launched a direct round trip flight operating five days a week between Hong Kong and Paris enabling it to offer a next-business-day service from Hong Kong to major cities in Europe.
The service represents a one-business-day improvement in transit time on FedEx International Priority and FedEx International Priority Freight shipments.
Robert Elliott, president, FedEx Express Europe, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa, said: “This additional flight supports FedEx international growth strategy to improve its service offerings as well as to enhance the overall competitiveness and efficiency of its international network.”
The new flight is FedEx third intercontinental lane from EMEA to Asia, joining existing connections from Paris via Delhi to Shanghai, and from Paris to the FedEx Guangzhou hub in China. The company said the Asia-to-Europe air cargo market is expected to expand at an average annual rate of 6.5 percent in the next two decades.
