Swiss adds new destinations as of winter timetable

Beijing will become Swiss International Air Lines latest destination next February as the airline adjusts its range of service to comply with demand during the 2011/2012 winter timetable period.  The reduction of selected frequencies and withdrawal of flights to some destinations is being offset by an increase in frequencies on other routes.

As of February 2012 Swiss will introduce new Zurich – Beijing and Geneva – Nice services.  Flights from Zurich and Geneva to London, Moscow and Madrid will be increased.  Beijing thus joins Hong Kong and Shanghai as the airline's third destination in China.  It already serves Hong Kong and Shanghai.

For the period of the winter timetable Swiss will serve a total of 72 destinations (47 in Europe, 25 intercontinental) in 38 countries with a fleet of 88 aircraft.  Passengers on all Swiss-operated long haul flights from Zurich and Geneva have a choice of three classes of travel, the airline claiming to be the only carrier in Europe offering this full selection on every one of its intercontinental flights –  First, Business and Economy. www.swiss.com
