In total, Swiss serves 93 destinations from Zurich and Geneva in the winter flight schedule and plans to offer around 80 percent of the capacity of 2019.
The Lufthansa subsidiary will expand its destination portfolio next winter. The Swiss carrier will serve a total of 93 destinations from Zurich and Geneva. Swiss is thus offering its passengers a greater variety of services than in the winter before the pandemic, but with fewer frequencies. Passengers can choose from 83 destinations from Zurich and 26 from Geneva.
“In view of the operationally difficult situation in the entire European aviation industry this summer, SWISS is focusing on further stabilization in the coming winter flight schedule. We will be able to offer our passengers a more extensive program than before the pandemic. Especially in Europe there are many attractive destinations for the colder season to choose from. At the same time, we have planned our offer conservatively and reduced some frequencies in order to ensure the greatest possible flight schedule stability," says Swiss CCO Tamur Goudarzi Pour.
