By Rachelle Harry

Swiss WorldCargo is offering capacity on a new service to and from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

Flying between Zurich and Ljubljana seven times per week, the new Swiss service will use an Airbus A220 and an Embraer E-190, providing a weekly capacity of 3.5 to 10 tonnes.

As of today, cargo shipments can be made to and from Ljubljana; mail will be accepted from March 2; and special cargo in the coming weeks.

Vienna-based Cargo Austria will oversee bookings and operations for Swiss WorldCargo Ljubljana flights. Meanwhile, ground handling will be carried out by A/P LJU (Fraport Slovenija).

Jochen Leibfritz, head of cargo, north and east Europe, at Swiss WorldCargo, commented: “We are excited to begin operating our non-stop service to and from Ljubljana. The destination will connect Zurich and the entire Swiss WorldCargo network with an important Central European market, which is home to a growing pharmaceutical sector.”
