Air transport is in dire straits. In the whole world. Switzerland is not spared. Coming into force on October 25, Swiss International Air Lines’ meager winter schedule is hardly reassuring. The Lufthansa subsidiary confirms that more than 13% of its destinations currently served will be taken over by other companies in the group.


“It is true that some flights scheduled in our next winter timetable will not be operated by Swiss, as initially planned. Other subsidiaries of the Lufthansa group will do this. A dozen routes
(editor’s note: out of 88 destinations in all, i.e. 67 from Zurich and 21 from Geneva) will be affected by these changes. We strive to provide the best possible options for our customers. For example with Lufthansa or with Austrian Airlines ”, says Meike Fuhlrott, spokesperson for Swiss International Air Lines.
