FedEx Express to begin Liege-Memphis flight

FedEx Express (FedEx) will begin operating a new flight linking TNT´s European air hub in Liège, Belgium to the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee beginning in early April 2017, the company said.

From Memphis the aircraft will continue on a round-the-world flight to Shanghai, China via Seattle, Washington and Anchorage, Alaska before returning to Liège.

FedEx Express will use Boeing 777 Freighters offering 116 tons of capacity for the Liège-Memphis service. Once in Memphis, the TNT volumes will be injected into the FedEx network for delivery across the US and Canada.

With this new flight, TNT customers shipping to North America will benefit from broader service coverage, faster transit times, and higher weight capabilities, while continuing to work with TNT as they do today.
