Swiss capital to London

SkyWork Airlines of Switzerland has made its debut in the UK market offering an evening daily service from London City Airport to Bern, the Federal capital.  Initially operating once daily Sunday to Friday frequency increases up to 11 flights a week from 5 September facilitating day returns Monday to Friday, tailored to the needs of both business and leisure travellers. 

The airline launched the service with an impressive reception at London’s Swiss Embassy, the Ambassador himself acting as host.

Bern Airport is situated just outside the small city (population 130,000) that is the capital of Switzerland.  It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Initially the fast and very comfortable 31-seat Dornier 328 will be used for the services but SkyWork has already run a training flight with a Bombardier Q400 into the airport. 

London City is no longer connected to Basel with direct flights and SkyWork suggest that the best way to that city is via Bern and a one hour train journey. www.flyskywork.com
