Swiss WorldCargo to launch nonstop service to Osaka and Washington DC

8/7/2019 7:59:47 AM

Swiss WorldCargo, the air freight division of Swiss International Air Lines, will begin nonstop services to Osaka, Japan, and Washington D.C. in the US as of March 2020.

Flights to the two destinations will be operated by an Airbus A340-300 and Airbus A330-300, respectively.

Swiss WorldCargo will fly to Osaka five times weekly, and to Washington D.C. once daily during its summer schedule, and five times weekly during its winter schedule. The new routes will create nonstop connections between the two cities, offering a weekly payload of 100 to 150 tonnes in each direction.

The carrier will also begin operating a Boeing 777-300ER on daily flights to Tokyo and Miami. Both destinations are currently operated with a smaller Airbus A330 and A340 equipment. The Zurich-Tokyo route will subsequently be operated with Boeing 777-300ERs from February 2020 onwards, and the Zurich-Miami route will switch to all-Boeing 777-300ER service from Summer 2020, which will offer an increased payload.

“We are very excited to announce our new destinations for 2020, which allow us to expand our reach within strategic global markets,”commented Head of Global Area & Contribution Management, Alexander Arafa. “By increasing capacity to and from major locations in Japan and the USA, we are able to further meet the needs of our customers in these cities and their surrounding regions.”

Flights and schedule changes will begin going into effect following the arrival of two new Boeing 777-300ER to the SWISS aircraft fleet.
