“Today is a great day for Liege Airport. Indeed, FEDEX has decided to rotate around the world with Liege Airport being their European stop. This is a first step towards the integration of the TNT and FEDEX networks.
I would like to thank the management of FEDEX for this sign of confidence in Liege Airport and wish them every success in this operation.
Since 6 months, Liege Airport has prepared this operation with the FEDEX teams and has made every effort to succeed.
As the eighth European cargo airport, Liege Airport is confirming its position as the number one Belgian cargo airport. Liege Airport has plenty of room for growth, and hopes to grow hand in hand with FEDEX. All partners of the Liege Airport Cargo community are welcoming Fedex and look forward to growing the business together.”
