​The global aircraft charter specialist is supporting Swiss WorldCargo with all third-party chartering requirements through its worldwide office network.

Already an acknowledged global leader for care-intensive cargo services, the agreement will allow Swiss WorldCargo to expand its specialized product portfolio and offer clients full or part charter solutions using the entire range of cargo aircraft worldwide.

Chapman Freeborn will benefit by working closely with one of the market’s leading airlines which has a network of some 120 destinations in over 80 countries - served by a fleet of 85 aircraft including Airbus A319, A320, A321, A330-300 and A340 types.

The agreement was signed in Zurich last week and follows the March launch of a strategic cooperation deal between Chapman Freeborn and Lufthansa Cargo, the partner airline of Swiss International Air Lines.

Russi Batliwala, CEO of Chapman Freeborn, said: “We’re delighted to sign this partnership agreement with Swiss WorldCargo and we welcome the opportunity to offer our cargo charter services to their international client base. Both companies share a reputation for focussing on value-added services and operational excellence, and their expertise in belly cargo and worldwide network of destinations make it an ideal fit.”

“It is our strategic goal to strengthen and deepen customer relationships in our chosen markets and to offer a more complete solution set, and we’re convinced that in Chapman Freeborn we have found the perfect partner for charter and other related services,” comments Oliver Evans, Chief Cargo Officer of Swiss International Air Lines.

“Our two companies can forge a true partnership as we have distinct areas of expertise and experience while sharing a common dedication to and passion for quality, customer service and just getting the job done according to our promises.”
