Swiss markets holiday belly capacity

Swiss markets holiday belly capacity

   Swiss WorldCargo, the cargo division of Swiss International Air Lines, will introduce six new destinations in its route network through a partnership with Edelweiss Air.

   With the upcoming winter schedule, Swiss WorldCargo will market the belly capacity of the Switzerland-based holiday airline to the destinations: Mauritius, Kilimanjaro, Goa, Pristina, Skopje, and Puerto Plata.

   'The markets served are small in volume terms, but require as much sophistication of service and reliability as any of the other vertical industry sectors which we focus on, so that both companies have benefited and will continue to enjoy new, attractive business opportunities,' said Oliver Evans, chief cargo officer at Swiss WorldCargo, in a statement.

   Swiss WorldCargo said it continues to include the entire portfolio of Edelweiss Air destinations in Kenya, Mexico, the Maldives and Dominican Republic.
