FedEx Express (FedEx), has announced the launch of a new dedicated B777F route connecting the FedEx World Hub in Memphis to South Korea with four nonstop flights a week. In 2010, US$38.8 billion of goods were exported from the US to South Korea, a significant 35 per cent rise year-on-year. With approval of the pending US – Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS), the demand for goods and services is expected to rise between the US and South Korea. According to the US International Trade Commission, US merchandise exports to Korea would likely increase by nearly $11 billion a year. In the Asia Pacific region, FedEx operates B777Fs with connections direct to the Memphis Super hub from Hong Kong, Singapore via Osaka, Shanghai and Shenzhen. In addition, a 777F was also deployed to connect Hong Kong to its European hub in Paris last December.
