Cargolux opens Basel office

Cargolux Airlines said it has opened an office in Basel to serve the local Swiss market.

The carrier said it will soon introduce additional road feeder services from Switzerland to its hub in Luxembourg, from which it serves 50 international destinations.

Basel is the home of Panalpina, a major freight forwarder, and one of the airline's biggest customers. The move could also position Cargolux to pick up traffic previously handled by Swiss World Cargo, which is suffering from cutbacks by its parent, Swiss International Airlines.
