Swiss International Air Lines had its inaugural non-stop flight between Zurich and Singapore.
This new daily service, which is being operated with an Airbus A340-300, offers Swiss WorldCargo’s customers significant airfreight capacity in both directions.
“We’re very proud to reconnect our global network to one of Asia’s most vibrant economic powerhouses,” said Ashwin Bhat, Swiss WorldCargo’s vice president area management Americas, Middle East and Asia. “Like Switzerland, Singapore is known for its quality, reliability and productivity. And our customers for this new route can be sure of receiving all the tailor-made airfreight solutions and high-grade service that they have come to expect from Swiss WorldCargo.”
Business-friendly Singapore is a top transportation hub for sea and air cargo. It is also a major gateway to Asia.
In turn, this flight to Zurich will boost Changi Airport’s connectivity to Europe.
“SWISS has been fondly missed by the Changi Airport community as well as many of its loyal customers since its last flight to Changi in April 2009,” Lee Seow Hiang, CAG’s CEO, said. “Europe is an important market for Changi Airport.”
Singapore holds a leading position in various areas of manufacturing such as electronics, precision engineering and chemicals.
