FedEx Express has introduced brand new Boeing 767 Freighters on European routes, offering more capacity on Dublin – London – Paris services.
The first 767F in European service for FedEx can carry 41 tonnes of cargo, a 16% increase in capacity compared to older aircraft.
It is also 9% more fuel efficient than its predecessor, which combined with the higher capacity, considerably reduces emissions.
The aircraft operates five times a week and connects FedEx hubs in Dublin, London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle, offering Irish businesses greater opportunities to trade globally.
Eser Sezek, managing director of Ireland operations says: “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.”
Sezek adds: “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.”
