The year 2020 has been extraordinary and different from any we have ever known. Much of what we have always understood as normal has changed dramatically, and the effects of the COVID-19 crisis have been felt heavily throughout the world, and will be felt in the coming months and years ahead. The air cargo industry has played an important role in helping to offset the effects of the crisis. Despite drastic reductions in available capacity, we have been able to maintain the flow of global commerce, connecting economies and shipping life-saving medicines and materials that support medical professionals worldwide.
Ashwin Bhat, head of cargo, Swiss International Air Lines, says, "SWISS has been affected massively with dramatic reduction of capacity due to declining passengers impacted by the constantly evolving restrictions imposed globally to halt the rapid spread of the pandemic. Even under these circumstances, Swiss WorldCargo was able to maintain a network schedule of flights (and road feeder service) connecting Switzerland to the world and offering solutions to our customers for their critical and care-intensive cargo. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Swiss WorldCargo has flown approx. 1,000 cargo only flights, offering our customers the same quality services and products as in the past."
