FedEx to launch flight from Bengaluru to Paris
FedEx premium domestic express delivery service is also expanding its next business day* service from 14 to 58 origin cities over a period of months from August 2010.
"India has witnessed exceptional levels of economic expansion, and despite the global economic downturn, the economy reflects strong performance in manufacturing and export-oriented industries," said Kenneth F.
Koval, vice president, Operations, FedEx Express India. "The launch of the new flight from Bengaluru, coupled with the domestic service expansion, broadens market opportunities for customers doing business locally as well as internationally by leveraging the reach of the FedEx worldwide network."
With the share of Europe and America in India's exports at 23.8 per cent and 16.5 per cent respectively between 2008 and 2009, the new flight from Bengaluru opens up immense possibilities for South Indian companies trading with Europe.
