To cater to the rising demand in intra-Asia trade, FedEx Corp. subsidiary FedEx Express is bolstering its network by launching eight new flights from the FedEx gateway facility in Clark.
With these new flights, Philippine exporters and importers will have access to 56 weekly flights coming in and out of Clark. It also enables a one-day transit time improvement from South Korea to the Philippines, providing an excellent opportunity for local importers and small- and medium-sized enterprises.
These flights are the latest addition to the company’s robust network that will enable FedEx to expand its airfreight capacity by over 700,000 pounds per week and provide its customers with direct connectivity between North Pacific and Southeast Asian markets.
For this lane, FedEx is using fuel-efficient Boeing 767 freighters and will operate four days a week with two loops. The Northern Loop connects Osaka, Japan and Incheon, South Korea to the Clark Gateway four times a week. The Southern Loop, meanwhile, has added four-a-week stops in Singapore, in addition to the existing flights to China.
FedEx also recently announced a new route between Asia and Europe, improving connectivity and service reliability for customers across North Asia including China and Japan. This route also provides one-day-a-week direct connection between FedEx Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Hub to Singapore.
