Zurich – The airline Swiss is adding a number of new destinations from Zurich and Geneva in the 2022/23 winter season. The Lufthansa subsidiary announced on Tuesday that it is planning to offer around 80 percent of the capacity in the pre-Corona year 2019 again.
In total, Swiss will serve 93 destinations from Zurich and Geneva in the winter flight schedule. In view of the “difficult operational situation” in the entire European aviation industry this summer, Swiss is relying on further stabilization in the winter flight plan, the statement said. The variety of offers is even greater than in the winter before the pandemic, but with a lower number of frequencies.
From Zurich, Swiss will serve a total of 83 destinations in the winter season. It will now fly once a week to the southern English city of Bristol, using aircraft operated by partner Helvetic Airways. The destinations Bologna, Nantes, Sofia and Vilnius, which were added in summer, will continue to be served in winter.
Expansion of various European destinations
The offer is also being expanded for various European destinations as well as for destinations in Asia: Bangkok is to be flown to daily again in winter and Singapore, Delhi and Mumbai six times a week. In addition, passengers are expected to have access to Premium Economy Class on the entire Boeing 777 fleet next winter.
The offer from Geneva includes 25 destinations in Europe in winter as well as the long-haul connection to New York. The offer from the city on the Rhone will be reinforced, especially to Scandinavia, with an additional flight to Stockholm and three each to Gothenburg and Copenhagen.
The direct connection to Brussels introduced in summer in cooperation with Brussels Airlines was also offered in winter. In addition, the “classic summer destinations” Larnaca, Faro and Heraklion will be served until November. (awp/mc/ps)
