Swiss WorldCargo Expands Network to Toronto

[ June 5, 2024   //   ]

Swiss WorldCargo, the cargo unit of Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS), has launched a new route between Zurich and Toronto, Canada, as part of expanding its long-haul network served by SWISS and Swiss WorldCargo.
The addition of Toronto to its international network will support SWISS airfreight division’s efforts to connect economies, cultures, and societies across Canada and Europe, ensuring an interconnected relationship between these key regions.
The new route will connect Zurich to Toronto with five weekly flights, employing the same Airbus model – the A333 aircraft – that has served another SWISS’s and Swiss WorldCargo’s recently announced destination, Washington D.C.
This expansion expands its airfreight division network in North America, which includes Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Newark and San Francisco. The new route also plays a crucial role in serving diverse industries in the Ontario region, such as manufacturing, technology, automotive, pharmaceutical and healthcare, Swiss WorldCargo said.
SWISS airfreight division’s focus on cold chain solutions for the pharmaceutical sector emphasizes its commitment to maintaining the integrity and efficacy of critical healthcare products during transport around the globe. Industries active in the pharmaceutical sector in the Ontario region can thus benefit from Swiss WorldCargo’s comprehensive and reliable logistical solutions.
“Toronto has emerged as a critical hub in technology, automotive, and healthcare” said Lorenzo Stoll, head of cargo at SWISS. “By linking this city with our extensive network, we aim to nurture strong economic ties with the Ontario region, by providing our customers in the area with seamless logistics solutions for the transport of their care-intensive and temperature-sensitive cargo.”
