In the 2023 summer flight schedule, Swiss plans to offer around 85 percent of the capacity it had in 2019 from Geneva and Zurich. The Weltease cooperation with Air Baltic, which will start shortly, is to be continued.
The company says it will continue to use ACMI partners to stabilize flight offerings. These are Helvetic Airways, Air Baltic and Edelweiss Air. Six Embraer jets from the former airline are in service for Swiss all year round. More machines are to be used in the 2023 summer flight schedule. Also you can continue Airbus A220-300 operated by Air Baltic to fly. Edelweiss Air will operate an Airbus A2023 for Swiss between May and October 340. This is to be used between Zurich and Montreal.
According to Swiss, it will focus on North America in the long-haul segment. With increasing opening, the Asia destinations are to be ramped up again. In European traffic, Bristol is now offered from Zurich, and flights to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Hamburg are available from Geneva. The carrier offers a total of 112 destinations, 86 of which depart from Zurich and 47 from Geneva.
"We are very pleased that we will be able to gradually expand our flight schedule next summer to 85 percent of the capacity of 2019, as originally planned. Our top priority is to offer our passengers a stable flight program in the coming holiday summer. We have placed our focus on the most popular destinations and are confident so far that the return in demand for air travel will continue structurally, even in a more difficult economic environment," says Swiss CCO Tamur Goudarzi Pour.
