SWISS to Singapore

Lufthansa’s SWISS (Swiss International Air Lines ) division is to introduce a daily non-stop flight from Zurich to Singapore on 12 May next year.  The new longhaul service to one of Asia’s prime business hubs will be operated by a three-class 219 seat Airbus A340.  Flight time is around 11 hours.  Star Alliance partner Singapore Airlines is already on the route.

“Singapore is one of Switzerland’s most important intercontinental markets, and one that has seen constant growth over the past few years”, says SWISS CEO Harry Hohmeister.  “By providing our new daily non-stop service from Zurich, we aim to meet this substantial demand. In doing so, we’re also continuing our steady long-term investment in the region: Singapore will be SWISS’ eighth Asian destination”. www.swiss.com
