Swiss WorldCargo, the airfreight division of Swiss International Air Lines, will begin operating flights according to its Winter Timetable today. This introduces new destinations as well as increased capacity in Asia.

As from 1 February, a daily Boeing 777-300ER will operate on flights to Tokyo, offering additional tonnage. Flights to Osaka, Japan’s third-largest city will commence on 1 March, serviced by an Airbus A340-300.

Cargo traffic will also resume on the following routes:

  • Flights to Colombo will resume on 31 October; operated by an Airbus A340-300
  • Flights to Phuket will resume on 3 November; operated by an Airbus A340-300
  • Flights to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) will resume on 18 November; operated by an Airbus A340-300

In the Americas, the winter schedule will offer additional flights to and from Miami (MIA). This complements Swiss WorldCargo’s daily flights to North America gateways, including New York, Newark, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Chicago.

“We look forward to augmenting our customer offering in Japan,” said Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo, Swiss International Air Lines. “With additional capacity to Tokyo, as well as our first-ever direct flights to Osaka, we will be able to provide even better service in the region. Likewise, we will re-commence flights in select destinations in Asia and boost capacity in North America, thus rounding out our strong presence in both areas.”
