Swiss WorldCargo launches daily connection to Ljubljana
Swiss WorldCargo is serving Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, since 3rd February. The airfreight division of Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will operate flights between Zurich and Slovenia’s capital 7 times/week.
Swiss WorldCargo provides flights using an Airbus A220 and Embraer E-190, with a weekly capacity ranging between 3.5 to 10 tons. As of today, general cargo shipments will be available to and from the destination, while mail will be accepted as of 2 March and special cargo in the coming weeks.
The dedicated team from Cargo Austria, based in Vienna, will handle LJU bookings and all operational issues. Physical ground handling will be done by A/P LJU (Fraport Slovenija). Furthermore, an RFS service for larger shipments is expected to open in the next months.
The service is important in connecting Slovenia’s capital and main business hub with a non-stop flight to Zurich, as well as to and from onward destinations within the wide-ranging intercontinental Swiss WorldCargo network.
“We are excited to begin operating our non-stop service to and from Ljubljana,” says Jochen Leibfritz, Head of Cargo North and East Europe. “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.”
Headquartered at Zurich Airport, Swiss WorldCargo offers a comprehensive range of logistics solutions for transporting high-value and care-intensive consignments to some 130 destinations in over 84 countries. Their extensive network of airfreight services is further supplemented by daily truck connections between key business centers.
