Federal Express (FedEx) has extended its United States-China and China-Asia service to four direct flights weekly.

The all-cargo flights will link US cities with Beijing and Shanghai through the company's AsiaOne network.

The service connects China to FedEx's Asia-Pacific hub in Subic Bay, the Philippines, which links 13 cities in Asia.

John Quinn, vice-president for China and Mid-Pacific Region, said FedEx planned to add more destinations in China. He said it had expanded the number of cities served from 60 to 73 since September.
