Bombardier Q400 to Bern

SkyWork Airlines, the Swiss carrier, has very quickly upgraded its new route from Bern to London City Airport following a surge of bookings.  When introduced in late March of this year the plan was to initially service the operation with a 31-seat Dornier 328 aircraft but effective last week a 70-seat Bombardier Q400 is now the mainstay aircraft on the route. 

SkyWork Airlines is delighted with the reaction to the latest addition to its route network, the only direct flight between London’s premier business airport and Switzerland’s capital.  “Forward bookings are very strong, especially for Easter and we have been extremely pleased with how the market has responded so positively to the service,” said SkyWork Airlines CEO Tomislav Lang.  He noted that the split of traffic is showing to be 60% leisure, 40% business.

From 5 September SkyWork will be offering 11 flights a week on the route, facilitating day returns Monday to Friday, tailored to the needs of both business and leisure travellers. www.skyworkairlines.com
