The new flagship of the SWISS fleet, the Boeing 777-300ER long-haul twinjet, is to enter revenue service over the 2015/16 winter schedules, operating between Zurich and New York.
The airline says the start of the winter programme will also see more frequencies on the Zurich – São Paulo and Zurich – Miami routes, in response to rising demand. From next month, there will be 10 weekly services to São Paulo and 14 to Miami.
SWISS says it will also be expanding its offer from Geneva, with additional seasonal services to Russian and Portuguese destinations.
Lisbon and Porto will each have five weekly flights. Moscow will have 14 weekly frequencies from Geneva during the winter timetable period and St Petersburg will have one weekly Geneva flight, rising to three during the peak periods of 29 December – 9 January and 18 – 27 February.
The Hub portfolio, which was introduced last spring to provide Switzerland with better connections to its neighbouring countries, will also be adjusted to meet winter-season demand.
This will see 20 of the 22 summer-schedule destinations retained, including Dresden, Helsinki, Gothenburg, Krakow and Sofia. Bilbao, Izmir, Malta and Porto will also continue to be served. www.swiss.com
