Swiss WorldCargo adds new destinations

Swiss WorldCargo will begin nonstop services to Osaka and Washington DC in 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, while servicing Washington DC daily during its summer timetable, and five times weekly during its winter timetable.

The new destinations will create nonstop connections between Japan’s third-largest city and the capital of the US, while offering a weekly payload of 100 to 150 tonnes in each direction.

Additionally, the carrier will also begin operating a Boeing 777-300ER on daily flights to Tokyo and Miami.

The Zurich-Tokyo route will 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.

The larger-capacity Boeing 777-300ERs will offer an increase in payload.

“We are very excited to announce our new destinations for 2020, which allow us to expand our reach within strategic global markets,” said Alexander Arafa, head of global area and contribution management. “By increasing capacity to and from major locations in Japan and the US, 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.
