FedEx to expand at Anchorage

Posted: Thursday, January 18, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Memphis, Tenn.-based FedEx plans to add about 30 entry-level jobs at its sorting hub at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport this year, company officials say.

FedEx also continues to look at whether to expand its hub, said Dennis Bird, managing director of the express carrier's Alaska operations.

Its rival, United Parcel Service, has said it also was weighing a hub expansion at Anchorage.

UPS recently was awarded six weekly flights to China, all of which will stop in Anchorage to refuel, change crews and swap cargo, officials said.
