In Tuesday’s announcement, SWISS’ Chief Commercial Officer, Tamur Goudarzi Pour, said,

“In the wake of the pandemic, it has now become clearer than ever that travel is a deeply-rooted human need, especially among the younger generations. The demand for air travel continues to steadily rise, and the loadings on our flights are now higher than they have ever been before. As The Airline of Switzerland, we connect our home country with the world; and, in doing so, we offer our customers a quality range of premium air services. We are delighted that we will be further expanding our route network next summer on both the short- and the long-haul front. And as we do so, we will continue to pursue the kind of balanced growth that pays due and full regard to our customers, to society and to environmental considerations and concerns.”

As previously mentioned, SWISS will also expand their European network for summer 2024 with new direct service to Košice in Slovakia and Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Both routes will be operated with a state-of-the-art Airbus A220 jet. During summer 2024, SWISS customers will enjoy a choice of 67 European and 24 intercontinental destinations on departure from Zurich, as well as nonstop service to New York and service to 43 short-haul destinations from Geneva.
