SWISS WorldCargo has announced the launch of direct flights between Zurich and San Francisco, effective 2 June, 2010. The cargo division of Swiss will operate a six-times weekly service with wide bodies A340-300 aircraft, effectively doubling cargo capacity to and from the region in which Swiss already serves Los Angeles.

Swiss WorldCargo will be able to link Los Angeles, San Francisco and Zurich to consolidate its reputation as a global leader in the distribution of time-sensitive and care-intensive cargo.

 Jack Lampinski, managing director The Americas Swiss WorldCargo, said: “These new services complement our strong North American network and demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with access to strategic global markets with all our range of special products.

“Swiss is one of the few carriers which will be able to further expand their network in 2010. The new service to San Francisco shows that we are capable of seizing opportunities in a difficult market environment and we emerge from the crisis as a reliable partner for our customers,” Lampinski concluded.
