From July 2023, the holiday airline Edelweiss will use another Airbus A340 long-haul aircraft. The HB-JMC will be taken over by sister company Swiss, thereby expanding the sub-fleet to five units.

According to Edelweiss Air, the planning work for the cabin conversions is currently taking place. The HB-JMC is to be repainted in the colors of the holiday airline. The first use is expected from July 2023. “I am delighted that we will be able to expand our long-haul fleet again from summer 2023. With the additional Airbus A340, we will be able to meet the increasing demand for flights to our long-haul holiday destinations,” says company boss Bernd Bauer.

The Edelweiss fleet currently consists of four Airbus A340s and twelve A320s, which are used on short and medium-haul routes. Previously they also had A330s, but these were handed over to the German Eurowings Discover.
