SWISS increases to London

SWISS, thanks to the ongoing strength of its financial position and recently posted net profit of CHF113m (£66.8m) for the first nine months of 2009, the Zurich-based Lufthansa division is in a better position than most and has been able to steadily expand its services to Switzerland and beyond.  From 10 January onwards the airline will offer six new daily services between Heathrow and Geneva and will be increasing its number of seats from the UK to Switzerland by up to 30%.  The extra slots clearly come from the portfolio of sister company bmi (see above) using one of their aircraft.  Travellers will benefit of recently upgraded SWISS facilities at Geneva Airport, including new First, Business Class and Senator Lounges.  From London City, SWISS will slightly modify its daily capacity to Geneva by offering four daily frequencies from 10 January and by adding an additional frequency to Zurich on Saturdays. www.swiss.com
