    Swiss WorldCargo has begun cargo operations to Ljubljana, Slovenia, operating flights between Zurich and Slovenia’s capital seven times a week.

    Swiss WorldCargo will plan flights using an Airbus A220 and Embraer E-190, with a weekly capacity ranging between 3.5 to 10 tons.

    As of today, general cargo shipments will be available to and from the destination, while mail will be accepted as of 2 March and special cargo in the coming weeks.

    The dedicated team from Cargo Austria, based in Vienna, will handle LJU bookings and all operational issues.

    Physical ground handling will be done by A/P LJU (Fraport Slovenija). Furthermore, an RFS service for larger shipments is expected to open in the next months.

    The service is important in connecting Slovenia’s capital and main business hub with a non-stop flight to Zurich, as well as to and from onward destinations within the wide-ranging intercontinental Swiss WorldCargo network.

    “We are excited to begin operating our non-stop service to and from Ljubljana,” says Jochen Leibfritz, Head of Cargo North and East Europe.

    “The destination will connect Zurich and the entire Swiss WorldCargo network with an important Central European market which is home to a growing pharmaceutical sector.”

    Qatar Airways has expanded its codeshare cooperation with Malaysia Airlines, starting from 27 January 2020, strengthening a strategic partnership first initiated in 2001.

    With 10 Qatar Airways destinations covered by the airlines’ current codeshare cooperation, the expanded agreement will allow Malaysia Airlines passengers to book travel to 20 additional Qatar Airways gateways in Europe, America, and Africa.

    In turn, Qatar Airways passengers will benefit from access to four exciting new destinations in South East Asia.

    They can now book travel on Malaysia Airlines’ flights to Sibu, Malaysia; Alor Setar, Malaysia; Medan, Indonesia; and Surabaya, Indonesia.

    This brings the total number of codeshare routes in Malaysia Airlines’ network to 24.

    Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Since 2001, both airlines have witnessed the significant benefits codeshare cooperation have brought, providing passengers with unrivalled service and seamless connections.

    The expansion of codeshare cooperation between Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines is a natural next step in the strengthening of our partnership.”

    Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Executive, Mr. Izham Ismail, said: “Malaysia Airlines is delighted to further develop and grow our relationship with Qatar Airways with this codeshare agreement. Through this cooperation, we will be able to provide travel options for our outbound travelers as well as inviting more travelers to experience the beauty Malaysia has to offer. We look forward to sharing our Malaysian hospitality further and provide a truly Malaysian experience for our passengers.”

    Sales for selected new codeshare destinations will open today, 15 January, when Malaysia Airlines customers will be able to book travel on Qatar Airways flights from Doha to Vienna, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Munich, Athens, Rome, Oslo, Barcelona, Madrid, Geneva, and Zurich.

    Qatar Airways began flying to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2001, now a triple daily service. Penang, Malaysia was launched in February 2018, initially with three weekly flights that increased to five weekly flights in October 2019.

    A five-time weekly service to Langkawi, via Penang, was launched in October 2019. In 2001, Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines announced their first codeshare agreement, which was expanded in 2018, to provide greater connectivity and new destinations to their passengers.

    A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by Skytrax.

    It is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted ‘Skytrax Airline of the Year’ title, which is recognised as the pinnacle of excellence in the airline industry, five times.

    Qatar Airways operates a modern fleet of more than 250 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA), to more than 160 destinations worldwide.

    The world’s fastest-growing airline added several new destinations to its network last year, including Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Malta; Davao, Philippines; Lisbon, Portugal; Mogadishu, Somalia; Langkawi, Malaysia; and Gaborone, Botswana.

    Dunkerque-Port will deploy an investment programme of €37.7 million in 2020, with the year devoted to the completion and handover of the major logistics and industrial platforms.

    It will also see the start of the first operations of the 2019-2023 Strategic Project, with in particular the launch of work on the new building intended to house the Border Police (PAF) and the United Kingdom Border Force (UKBF), and the creation of a new electrical substation in the West port.

    The studies for the CAP 2020 project will continue in the pre- project phase.

    2019 was marked by the commissioning of the extension to the quai de Flandre in the West Port.

    The completion of the operation is a major step in the further development of the container sector in Dunkerque.

    Dunkerque-Port can now simultaneously berth two of the largest ships in the world fleet under optimal conditions.

    A shoreside electricity supply has been developed as the same time. It has been available since spring 2019.

    Dunkerque-Port is thus the first French port to provide users of a container terminal with a shoreside elec- tricity supply.

    In 2019, Dunkerque-Port also finalized the work involved in separating the port rail network and the national rail network.

    Costing more than €18 million, the operation involved aligning the operating areas of the signal boxes at the border points of the two networks.

    This means port rail installations can now be managed and modified without calling on the French Railway Board (SNCF).

    During the year, development work on the Dunkerque Logistics International South zone (DLI-South) and the Heavy Industries zone (ZGI) continued, as did the preparation of the industrial platform for SNF Floerger which is investing 60 million euros in the Dunkerque region, creating 100 jobs.

    In addition, Dunkerque-Port started to deploy its management plan for coastline protection with a sand refill of 1.2 Mm3, representing an investment of €3 million.

    This major new operation to protect the coastline, carried out using a discharge line for the dredged sand acquired by the Port at the start of the year, will be regularly renewed with volumes of up to 2 M m3/year.

    In all, in 2019, Dunkerque-Port invested more than €42 million.
