Swiss airline Edelweiss and sister company Swiss WorldCargo have agreed to continue their partnership.

The Edelweiss fleet and range of destinations has grown significantly in recent years. Edelweiss now flies to over 70 destinations in 34 countries, and the airline’s fleet consists of a total of 16 aircraft, including ten Airbus A320s, two Airbus A330s, and four Airbus A340s.

Swiss WorldCargo markets cargo capacity for Edelweiss on the following destinations:
North and South America: Vancouver, Calgary, Cancun, San Jose, Tampa, Orlando, Punta Cana, Rio de Janeiro, San Diego, Havana and Buenos Aires
Africa and Asia: Phuket, Colombo, Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, Malé, Mauritius and Cape Town
Europe: Larnaca, Gran Canaria, Pristina, Tenerife and Skopje

“Our partnership with Edelweiss offers great opportunities for both us and our customers, as we are able to complement our already strong international network with additional routes in diverse markets,” said Ashwin Bhat, head of Swiss WorldCargo. “We look forward to a continued successful partnership with Edelweiss in the future.”

Bernd Bauer, chief executive of Edelweiss, said: “Swiss WorldCargo has been a strong partner for us over the last several years. As Edelweiss expands in both fleet size and destinations, we look forward to continuing to augment our network through their valuable support in managing cargo traffic on our routes.”
