Press Release (BUSINESS WIRE)

FedEx Office, a world-class provider of convenient, state-of-the-art printing, packing, and shipping services and subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and RushMyPassport are teaming up to offer expedited U.S. passport services nationwide to travelers beginning this summer.


The routine passport processing time for the U.S. State Department recently increased from four to six weeks to six to eight weeks. Now, travelers short on time and in need of rushed passport processing, renewals, or updated government-compliant passport photos can stop by one of 2,000 convenient FedEx Office locations or visit to complete these travel tasks with one-stop shopping ease. Additional services include overnight shipping for rushed passport applications, full-tracking visibility throughout the approval process, and free 24/7 assistance from passport specialists.

“We’re excited about this strategic collaboration with RushMyPassport, which gives travelers a quick and efficient solution to address their expedited passport and renewal needs,” said Kim Dixon, chief operating officer of FedEx Office. “Many of us have experienced the distress of realizing our passport isn’t ready for an upcoming trip and, as a result, scramble to find a last-minute solution. This convenient service will help eliminate the confusion and common errors that often arise and help simplify the process.”

“I’ve helped many customers to get passport photos to renew their passport last minute after realizing it isn’t ready for an upcoming trip,” said Bayardo Ruiz, Flagship Store Manager, New York, NY. “The huge advantage of this new offering is now our customers can stop by any one of more than 2,000 locations across the country and get all their passport needs handled quickly and easily.”

Expedited passports and rushed passport renewal baseline pricing, which factors in the expedited processing service, is offered among six tiers. These include 24-hour service, next-day service, priority service, rush service, standard service, and rush renewal. Additionally, customers can purchase two high-quality, government-compliant 2x2 photos to submit with passport applications.

“Our team specializes in quickly securing U.S. passports for travelers. Routine passport processing can take weeks, which can mean the difference between enjoying that dream vacation you’ve spent months planning or canceling it. You also have to factor in the possibility of issues with documents you finally receive in the mail, causing further delays and even more headaches,” said Mosie Miller, CEO of RushMyPassport. “The combined service offering of RushMyPassport and FedEx Office helps travelers overcome these issues, giving a smooth and secure way to handle passport needs.”

Press Release (

Colorado Springs detailer Ryan Smith of Pro Auto Spa has been hand-picked for the 2019 Air Force One Detailing Team at Seattle’s Museum of Flight. He has been selected out of hundreds of detailers nationwide by the original “Detailer of Air Force One”, Renny Doyle of Detailing Success. Doyle announced this year’s 55-person team just in time for the Independence Day holiday. The weeklong detailing event, which is considered one of the largest in the country runs from July 7-14.

Smith received his Detailing Business, Paint Correction, Headlight Repair, and Ceramic Coatings Certification from Doyle last year, as well as dual certifications (CD SV) from the International Detailing Association (IDA).

Members chosen for the exclusive Air Force One Detailing Team, do so voluntarily as their patriotic duty to restore, maintain and protect the original presidential jet Air Force One and more than a dozen additional historic aircraft currently on exhibit in the museum’s new Airpark Pavilion. In addition to Air Force One, the team will continue restoring a WWII B-29 Super Fortress Bomber and a recently acquired and badly deteriorating Vietnam-era B-52G Stratofortress Bomber. They will also clean and continue to maintain the first-ever Boeing “Jumbo Jet” 747; the Concorde Alpha Golf; and the first 1960s-70s-era Boeing 727-022 commercial airliner – all three, planes previous teams have begun restoring in the past 5-10 years.

Air Force One is the first presidential jet, known as a flying Oval Office for four American presidents including Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. It entertained International dignitaries like Nikita Khrushchev and Henry Kissinger. For more than a decade, it lived on the open tarmac exposed to Seattle’s notorious climate.
