SWISS suspends flights to Abu Dhabi

27 March 2003

Because of a drop in reservations due to the crisis in Irak,and in keeping with the programme to streamline the route network, SWISS is suspending its thrice weekly continuation flights from Riyadh to Abu Dhabi, effective April 3. The last flight from Zurich to Abu Dhabi will be on April 1, 2003.

The drop in reservations for flights to and from Abu Dhabi, with a stop in Riyadh, is the main reason for this decision. The thrice weekly non-stop flights from Switzerland to Riyadh will continue.

Additionally, the daily non-stop A330 services to the United Arab Emirates (Dubai) are to continue. The sales organisation in Abu Dhabi remains in place and will be adapted to requirements. Abu Dhabi is located only 150 kilometres from Dubai and thus easily attainable for passengers.
