FedEx Express, the largest subsidiary of FedEx Corp., said Friday that it has the rights to operate three more weekly flights to China, raising its total to 26.
These flights were awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation, effective March 25. FedEx has not set a date for beginning these flights.
“We continue to expand our operations in China,” said Michael L. Ducker, executive vice president, international for FedEx Express. “Just this month we declared our plans to add a branch office in Chengdu, and in January we announced an agreement to purchase our joint venture partner, DTW Group, which will further improve and grow our outstanding service in China and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”
