On July 1, 2022, the first Sky Alps flight took place from Zurich Airport to Bolzano in South Tyrol. Instead of a car journey of at least 5 hours, the German-speaking province of Italy can now also be reached in a good hour's flight.

Until October, the route will be served twice a week with a DeHavilland Canada Dash 8, on Fridays and Sundays.

It will be flown with a De Havilland of Canada (DHC) 8/Q400 turboprop aircraft. The plane commonly known as the “Dash 8” has been around since 1984; SkyAlps owns three of these - two were delivered new to the now bankrupt Flybe in 2009 and are leased by Sky Alps from owner Chorus Aviation Services. The third such aircraft was originally delivered to Tyrolean Airways in 2010 and has now been taken over by Austrian Airlines; The Dash-8 all have 78 seats in a one-cabin configuration.
