In Brief

Mail to Moscow in a day

Express mail giant Federal Express has begun offering next-day delivery service between Moscow and the US, flying to and from Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport five times a week. The company is using its own Boeing 727-200 and is the first express mail company to provide such a service, according to company officials. By using its own plane, FedEx will be able to handle larger or more dangerous cargoes, which are restricted when using most other carriers. If all goes well, Moscow could become the hub of the company’s Eastern European operations. This would help Vnukovo’s attempt to boost its international airport status.
