It has been quiet for some time at the Swiss airport in Lugano, as there are no longer regular scheduled flights since the domestic connections to Zurich and Geneva were discontinued. From June 19, 2022, the Czech Silver Air wants to reactivate seasonal Elba flights.
The carrier has been operating in island traffic with the Let 410 aircraft for several years. Due to the corona pandemic, the offer has been greatly reduced in the last two years. Within Italy, subsidized PSO routes are served from Bologna, Florence, Milan-Linate and Pisa to Marina di Campo (Elba). At present it is also the only remaining provider of regular flight connections to/from Elba.
Lugano is the only international destination served by Silver Air from the Italian island. It is currently planned to fly twice a week between June 19 and September 25, 2022. The flight tickets are offered through the partner Flights and Travel. Elba is to be served from Ticino Airport on Wednesday and Sunday.
In the past there were also seasonal scheduled flights to the island of Elba from Bern, Zurich, Friedrichshafen, Altenrhein and Munich. These were carried out by the now defunct regional airlines SkyWork and InterSky. There are charter flights from Bern again this year, which are to be operated by Swiss Flight Services.
