XP Express Parcel Systems

XP Express Parcel Systems was founded in 1972 as City Courier by a few Amsterdam students who provided fast courier services within the capital on bicycles and motorcycles. The American courier company Purolator bought the company and after a few years sold it to the Dutch Vendex International, which changed the name City Courier to XP Express Parcel Systems. XP subsequently became a subsidiary of KLM Cargo. After a few years, KLM no longer considered courier services as its core business and sold XP to Global Distribution Express World Wide, jointly owned by the Australian TNT and the postal services of the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, France and Germany. Today, TNT is part of FedEx Corporation. XP Express Parcel Systems operated its own Fokker F.27 Friendship-fleet. Additional capacity was leased from numerous European companies. For the long-term contracts, these leased aircraft were painted in XP's livery but remained registered in the country of origin.

Beside its Fokker F.27 Friendships XP had some Piper PA-31 Navajo's in its fleet. This model of Dee Waldron is designed as an AI-model and not 100%. For instance the doors can not be opened. However the flight dynamics are perfect, thanks to David Carter.
