12 December 2006

An Airbus A320 with the registration letters HB-IJB today became the 70th SWISS aircraft in commercial service when it took off for Rome’s Fiumicino Airport on time at 07:25 this morning. As announced back in September, this aircraft enables SWISS to take advantage of the growth in European air transport. It will be deployed on various existing routes within Europe.

The HB-IJB is the 46th Airbus aircraft in the SWISS fleet. The A320 family now consists of seven A319, fifteen A320 and four A321 aircraft. Another two Airbus A321s will join the SWISS fleet in spring.
