SWISS to introduce new Basel-Hamburg service

8 April 2010

SWISS will be offering daily non-stop service between EuroAirport Basel and Hamburg from 20 May. The new route not only serves one of Germany’s prime tourist and business destinations; it will also provide a daily air connection between two of Europe’s major logistics and forwarding centres.

The Elbe, the port, the “Fischmarkt”, St. Pauli: from 20 May, SWISS customers can fly non-stop to Germany’s second city from Basel, too. In addition to its general maritime charm, Hamburg offers a vast range of museums, theatre and musical entertainment and historic sights that include the city centre and its landmark St. Michaelis Church.

The northern port city is also one of Germany’s most important industrial locations and general freight hubs. So SWISS’s new Basel-Hamburg route will link two of Europe’s prime logistics and forwarding centres with daily non-stop service.

SWISS customers from Basel will also have the opportunity to discover the delights of this multi-faceted city for as little as CHF 99*. The special introductory fare can be booked from 8 to 18 April for travel from 20 May.

The schedule:

Basel-Hamburg LX1038 Monday-Friday 15:20-16:55
Basel-Hamburg LX1032 Saturday 10:35-12:10
