The world’s largest express transportation company has introduced the new Boeing 767F jet into its European network.

The company introduced the new jet to continue modernisation efforts to its European air fleet environmental performance, and to increase operational efficiency.

The new Boeing 767F can carry up to 91,000 pounds of cargo, which represents an increase in capacity of approximately 16% compared to the aircraft it replaces.  It is also 9% percent more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, which, combined with the higher capacity, reduces emissions by 21% per pound.

Paloma Romero-Salazar, VP of operations Spain & Portugal, FedEx Express said: ”Modernising our fleet with a 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 Spanish customers who export, greater opportunity to ship their goods and trade globally”.
