Swiss WorldCargo (SWISS), the freight division of Swiss International Air Lines, and Edelweiss Air (Edelweiss), Switzerland’s leading leisure travel airline and sister company of Swiss International Air Lines, have agreed to a continued partnership for the coming years.  

The agreement, effective since the beginning of 2019, will see SWISS continue to market and sell Edelweiss freight capacity. Both companies will benefit from the expanding Edelweiss network, while pursuing additional global growth opportunities. SWISS will maintain responsibility for managing the belly cargo of the entire Swiss International Air Lines and Edelweiss fleet on all applicable routes. 

Edelweiss and SWISS have enjoyed a close partnership since 2009. In recent years, the Edelweiss fleet and range of destinations has grown significantly. Edelweiss now flies to over 70 destinations in 34 countries, and the airline’s fleet consists of a total of 16 aircraft, including 10 Airbus A320s, 2 Airbus A330s, and 4 Airbus A340s. 

SWISS 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.”

“Swiss WorldCargo has been a strong partner for us over the last several years,” said Bernd Bauer, CEO of Edelweiss. "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.”
