KENYA – FedEx Express, a company focused on transportation, e-commerce and services, has announced plans to introduce the first regularly scheduled service flight to Kenya in a bid to enhance its services to and from Africa.
The weekly scheduled flight travels will start from Memphis (United States) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), onto Johannesburg (South Africa) and Nairobi (Kenya), before connecting into the FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa air hub in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), onto Milan (Italy), and then Memphis (United States).
“We see enormous potential in the African continent, and we are delighted to help unlock growth opportunities for East and Central Africa businesses, boosting opportunities for trade and business expansion,” said Jack Muhs, regional president of the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa (MEISA) region for FedEx Express.
With the global FedEx network connecting 99 per cent of the world’s GDP, the addition of Kenya to the FedEx flight provides greater connectivity from businesses across Eastern Africa to and from the key trade lanes across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the United States.
“This expansion of our regularly scheduled FedEx Express all-cargo flight underscores our confidence in the African economies,” said Muhs.
Through this flight, FedEx will connect our customers to new growth opportunities, offer enhanced solutions to meet evolving customer demands, and provide opportunities for African businesses to reach their customers around the world.
