The tour begins with a continental breakfast and presentations on the airport's history, current activities, finances, projects, air service development efforts, and FedEx operations. The presentations are followed by a comprehensive bus tour around the airfield, including the FedEx World Hub and the Tennessee Air National Guard base. At the conclusion of the bus tour, attendees will also have the option of a walking tour of the new modernized concourse.

“The World Class Tour allows the public to learn about the past, present and future as it relates to MEM and its operations and projects,” said Scott Brockman, President and CEO of Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority. “This is a unique opportunity for our community to have a behind-the-scenes airport experience.”
