FedEx adds new flights between Memphis, U.K.'s Manchester

FedEx Express, the cargo airline of FedEx Corp., is launching new direct flights between its headquarters in Memphis and Manchester, England.
An MD-11 flight originating at the shipping giant's hub in Paris will stop in Manchester each day Monday to Thursday before flying to Tennessee.
The flights will increase the company's daily capacity between the U.S. and U.K. by up to 50 percent and between Europe and the U.S. by 20 percent, FedEx announced Tuesday.
"Manchester is the fastest-growing region in the U.K., which has led to increased market demand for reliable, time-definite express transportation services," said Robert W. Elliott, president, FedEx Express, Europe, Middle East, Indian subcontinent and Africa.
The airline already operates two express freighters from Stansted in southeastern England to Newark, New Jersey, and Memphis. The new flight is expected to increase next-day service and allow later pickup times for northern Britain.
