In the winter timetable, the airline offers 34 destinations on short and medium-haul routes and 17 destinations on long-haul routes.

After the successful launch of the route to Sal last winter, Edelweiss is expanding its offering to Cape Verde with a second weekly flight. This now also serves the island of Boa Vista. From the end of October 2022, the Swiss carrier will fly from Zurich to Sal on Mondays and Thursdays and also to Boa Vista on Mondays. The flights can be booked from July 12.

Egypt, the Canary Islands and Italy with significantly more flights, Morocco can be visited again

Edelweiss is strengthening the popular Egypt routes: ten weekly flights to Hurghada, three to Marsa Alam, three to Sharm el Sheikh and two to Luxor are now being offered. The offer to the Canary Islands will also be expanded and increased to nine weekly flights each to Tenerife and Gran Canaria, three weekly to Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, and one weekly to La Palma. Madeira is also served three times a week. The weekly flights to Lamezia Terme and Catania in Italy will be doubled from two to four. In addition, Morocco can be traveled to again; Marrakech has up to five connections a week and Agadir has added up to two connections a week.

The winter offer in the north and in Africa

For the first time, Edelweiss is offering a broad portfolio of destinations in the north in winter. The carrier flies once a week to Tromsø and Bergen (both from mid-December) and up to three times a week to Reykjavik/Keflavik in Iceland. Scotland's capital Edinburgh is on offer with two weekly flights. The connection to Cape Town, South Africa will be increased from one weekly connection to three. There will also be two flights a week to Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar in Tanzania until the beginning of February.

Caribbean and Central America: Costa Rica is being expanded further

The destinations in the Caribbean and Central America are still popular. Up to 10 flights a week are offered from Zurich. The frontrunners in the popularity scale are San José and Cancún, each with three flights a week, as the airline announced in a broadcast. Liberia/Guanacaste will now be served twice a week.
