Default new route for FedEx starts

Saturday October 15, 2005
FedEx starts overnight India-China link

FEDEX Express has launched the first daily overnight express delivery link between India and China.

The flight is part of the company’s new eastbound around-the-world route – connecting Europe, India, China and Japan with the FedEx US hub in Memphis – that will provide unprecedented access to and from the world’s largest markets.

Using a wide-bodied MD-11 freighter, FedEx intends to double current capacity between Europe and Asia with the addition of 850,000 lbs per week, it said in a statement.

“China and India can together reshape the world’s economy.

“Their economic emergence will eventually lift them to a leadership role in global business.

“Expanding trade between these two markets and the rest of the world is fuelling the need for value-added logistics services,” said FedEx Express, Asia Pacific president David L Cunningham Jr.

Last year, China became India’s second-largest trading partner, while India emerged as one of China’s top 10 Asian trading partners for the first time.

Bilateral trade between the two nations is expected to exceed US$20bil in 2008.

The new eastbound route includes a direct point-to-point connection between the Yangtze River Delta and Tokyo, Japan, extending cut-off times for cities in eastern China by up to one day.

It also increases capacity from China and Japan to North America.

Earlier this year, FedEx Express launched a westbound around-the-world route, which included the express air cargo industry’s first direct flight from mainland China to Europe from Shanghai to Frankfurt.

Looks really great now that we signed the worlds worst ex-pat package for pilots based in HKG.

Can't wait until we announce the opening of the newest FDA in Mumbai, using the precedent of our current POS LOA. I'm sure the STV's will go senior there too, right?

So...when are you going to get over this loss? Maybe, 2..3..5..10..20 years from now? Time to swap the "Puck Dis, I Prepper to go Hom" for "32% and proud". sorry Tony C.

Is this thread a joke? Why did you post news on something we've been doing for years?

HEY!! Did you guys know that FedEx is going to be allowed to operate "large aircraft"? Now, that the airfreight industry has been deregulated? That's right. The Falcon's history.

Awesome! I bet we see some 3 holers in our future.

I wonder if we'll ever have foreign domiciles?
