Swiss International Air Lines will be making further adjustments to its network and services in response to demand in its Winter 2012/13 schedules, which come into effect on Sunday 28 October. While certain destinations will see the usual seasonal reductions in frequencies, further flights will be added to the Zurich-Miami route. SWISS will also be expanding its network in its Summer 2013 schedules with the introduction of a new daily non-stop service between Zurich and Singapore.
More Zurich-Miami flights
SWISS will be adding four further weekly frequencies to its current daily service between Zurich and Miami from 29 November. The new flights will establish twice-daily service on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, all operated with advanced Airbus A330-300 equipment. All in all, Miami will receive eleven weekly flights until 5 May 2013.
SWISS will be further expanding its long-haul network next spring with the introduction on 12 May 2013 of a new non-stop daily service between Zurich and Singapore. The flights will be operated using Airbus A340-300 equipment. Singapore will be SWISS’s eighth Asian destination.
SWISS will also be making certain schedule adjustments on further routes from Zurich in the next few months. As last winter, services to Montreal, Los Angeles, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Athens and Dublin will be reduced in the winter period. Isolated modifications will also be made to Frankfurt and Birmingham frequencies. Service to Thessaloniki will be withdrawn in the winter schedules for economic reasons.
Modifications to the Geneva-based network
SWISS will also be offering an extensive range of services from Geneva over the next few months, with a network of 12 destinations including a daily Airbus A330-300 New York flight. As last year, SWISS will only be adjusting certain frequencies from Geneva on the London City and Nice routes in the winter period. Service to Madrid and Athens will also be reduced.
69 destinations in 37 countries
SWISS will serve a total of 69 (46 European and 23 intercontinental) destinations in 37 countries in the winter timetable period. The services will be provided by a 91-aircraft fleet, which includes six aircraft operated on a wet-lease basis.
Edelweiss Air/SWISS vacation flights
SWISS will also be offering flights to various attractive holiday destinations all over the world this winter together with its sister carrier Edelweiss Air. Services to the new destinations of Tampa and Cape Town, which were introduced this summer, will be continued in the winter schedules; and weekly flights will be operated to a range of further leisure destinations including Phuket, Male and Punta Cana. Tenerife and Las Palmas will also each be served weekly from Geneva.
The winter schedules enter into effect on 28 October and will remain in force until 30 March 2013. Full details of all flights are available at swiss.com.
