Swiss WorldCargo launches charter flights to support global supply chains

Swiss WorldCargo

Swiss WorldCargo will operate cargo-only flights on some aircraft beginning this week, transporting high-value and care-intensive goods on the existing SWISS passenger network. In these unprecedented times, the carrier is committed to maintaining global supply chains and delivering goods on behalf of its customers.

In the last full week of March, Swiss WorldCargo will fly twice between Zurich and Hong Kong, the first of several planned charter flights. The route will be serviced by the Airbus A340-300, and additional destinations and aircraft may be selected based on customer needs for global shipping.

Ashwin Bhat, Head of Cargo, Swiss International Air Lines, said, “Despite the slowdown in global air travel, we are seeing an ongoing demand for the transportation of goods. At Swiss WorldCargo, we are therefore committed to supporting logistics and customer needs, especially for the shipping of sensitive goods such as medicines or pharmaceuticals. We aim to continue to offer the Swiss quality and consistency we are known for throughout the industry.”
