FedEx Express increases capacity on London-Paris-Dublin route
FedEx Express has added a new B767F to its London-Paris-Dublin route. The new aircraft will offer greater opportunity to UK SMEs exporting to Europe and can carry up to 91,000 pounds of cargo representing a capacity increase of approximately 16% compared to its predecessor. It will operate five times a week connecting the major FedEx hub in London Stansted to Paris and Dublin.
As the first Boeing 767F to begin service in Europe for FedEx, the new aircraft brings superior capacity and environmental performance compared to the aircraft it replaces, including noise reduction to the FedEx fleet as part of the company’s ongoing investment in its European air and road networks.
“We’re very excited about the introduction of the new Boeing 767F on the Dublin-London-Paris route. Modernising our fleet with cleaner, quieter, and more efficient aircraft is a top priority for FedEx Express and this new freighter represents another exciting milestone in this process. The increased capacity of the Boeing 767F will also offer Irish customers who export, greater opportunity to ship their goods to both the UK and mainland Europe,” said Eser Sezek, managing director, Ireland Operations.
“At our Dublin hub we are absolutely committed to providing exceptional service to customers whilst minimising the impact of our operations on the local area. This new aircraft, in addition to the B777 aircraft we already operate, will provide excellent service reliability.”
