Swiss plans to increase long-haul services as part of its 2023 winter schedule, with additional flights to the US, Asia and Africa.
The Lufthansa-owned carrier said services from Zurich and Geneva to Miami will be doubled to up to 14 weekly flights. The airlines will also fly to New York JFK (up to 21 times per week), San Francisco and Los Angeles (both six times weekly), as well as Boston, Chicago, New York EWR and Montreal (each seven times weekly).
Services to Shanghai will return to six times weekly, double the current three-times weekly frequency, while services to Singapore will become daily. Additional long-haul routes to Asia include seven-times weekly services to Bangkok, Delhi, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
The winter season will also see the carrier fly daily to the Egyptian capital Cairo, alongside daily flights to Johannesburg in South Africa.
Swiss chief commercial officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour said the carrier is continuing to see strong demand “despite all the economic and political uncertainties”.
“We’re very pleased to be further expanding our range of long-haul services this coming winter… But while doing so, it remains our paramount objective to provide our passengers with stable and reliable flight operations,” he said.
The carrier will offer a total of 21 long-haul destinations in the upcoming winter season, which runs from 29 October 2023 to 30 March 2024.
