Swiss WorldCargo, the airfreight division of Swiss International Air Lines, will begin operating new flights according to its Winter Timetable. This year's Winter Timetable introduces new global destinations in Asia, South America and Africa.
Flights to Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon from Zurich will commence on November 15, 2018, operated twice weekly, while flights to Colombo, Sri Lanka will begin operating on November 3, 2018, two times weekly. A twice-weekly flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina, will begin on 7 November, while a seasonal route to Mahé, Seychelles, began on 22 September.
By servicing these additional destinations, Swiss WorldCargo will continue to focus on meeting customer demands as well as complementing already established routes within the network. In Asia, Swiss WorldCargo currently handles cargo traffic on direct flights to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore and Phuket. In South America, destinations include São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
“The introduction of these new routes offers great new opportunities for us,” said Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo with Swiss International Air Lines. “This shows the impressive intercontinental footprint of both Swiss International Air Lines and Swiss WorldCargo. In addition to our increased cargo capacity with the arrival of new Boeing 777-300ERs, new destinations allow us to showcase our best-in-class quality and service on a variety of global routes.”
