Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will operate its new long-haul aircraft, the Boeing 777-300ER, on services between Zurich and São Paulo in the coming 2017/18 winter schedules. And also announce two new destinations for the coming 2017/18 winter schedules.
Four of SWISS’s seven weekly flights to Brazil’s biggest city will be operated with Boeing 777 equipment from 8 February 2018 onwards, while the remaining three continue to be operated with Airbus A340-300 aircraft; and one month later, on 9 March, the service will become an all-Boeing 777 operation.
New winter services to Wroclaw and Niš
SWISS will also be expanding its Zurich-based European services in the 2017/18 winter schedules. Wroclaw newly joins the network, with three weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The new service is primarily intended to meet the air travel needs of the growing Swiss-Polish business community.
The service introduced this summer between Zurich and Niš (Serbia) will be continued in the winter months. The twice-weekly Friday and Sunday service is aimed mainly at the travel segment of migrant workers and their families.
SWISS will be raising its frequencies to and from some existing European destinations this winter in response to continuing high demand. As a result, SWISS customers will enjoy the choice offered by 14 additional weekly services to Düsseldorf and 21 more flights a week to Berlin. All in all, Düsseldorf will receive 34 and Berlin 57 weekly SWISS flights. SWISS’s current Zurich-Lyon service will be discontinued from 29 October as part of a broader network enhancement.
