What are FedEx's routes going across the pond? Do they mainly fly just from EWR to CDG (that's their main European hub, right?), or do they have much more diverse routes?

Also, is FedEx looking to expand their flights across the Atlantic, and if so, would they ever consider loading freight onboard other airlines as belly cargo (or even main deck on KLM's 744Combi)?

Thanks,

Their primary TA routes are MEM/IND to CDG. Not sure about EWR-CDG. They used to have MEM-BRU prior to the CDG hub opening....not sure if it was maintained. They also operated some services thru PIK connecting up to their around-the-world service.

Fedex has 5 A310's based at CDG for intra-EU routes.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

CDG is the biggest Fedex hub, outside USA, with flights to Memphis, Newark, Dubai, Subic Bay and all the main european cities.

Fedex installations are really huge and impressive (I've visited them).

There are MD11, DC10, A310, (I saw one B727 stage 3), F27, Short 360.

AirGabon:

Their European bound flights from the U.S. also include a flight(s) from IND. And don't they fly A300s over there?

Would it be worthwhile for FedEx, then, to buy capacity on main European city-bound passenger flights, space and money permitted?

It would be interesting to see how much cargo FedEx ships every evening to Europe. I'm sure it's more than space available in cargo holds on passenger aircraft.
