Swiss accelerates e-AWB implementation
Swiss World Cargo, the air cargo division of Swiss International Airlines, is switching to e-AWB as the preferred means of shipping cargo, using the "single process" service.
As envisaged under the e-AWB 360 campaign promoted by Iata to accelerate process implementation, the new e-AWB approach is offered to all destinations and to all customers at a number of airports. Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) became the first such "e-airport" on 1 January 2016, joined by Paris (CDG) on 1 February, and by Zurich (ZRH), Dubai (DXB), Singapore (SIN), London (LHR) and Milan (MXP and SWK) on 1 March. Additional key airports are to follow in coming months.
