Swiss to further expand services in its coming winter schedules

Rescheduled flight to Bremen from Zurich. More flights to other short- and medium-haul destinations from both Zurich and Geneva
In response to the continuing strong demand for air travel, Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be offering a further wide range of services in the coming 2023/2024 winter timetable period. The SWISS winter schedules will include both new destinations and increased frequencies on selected existing routes. All in all, SWISS will provide services to 68 short- and medium-haul destinations from Zurich and Geneva in the coming winter timetable period. SWISS is significantly reducing the number of wet-lease flights during the coming winter. The aim is to halve the number of flights operated by Air Baltic and Helvetic Airways on behalf of SWISS during the winter.
“We are pleased to be offering the many people who are currently showing such a strong desire to travel an even broader range of routes and services in our coming winter schedules,” says SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour. “And, in doing so, to be continuing on our present path of steady and stable growth.”
Zurich-Bremen flight
SWISS travellers from Zurich will be offered a total of 63 short- and medium-haul destinations in the coming winter schedules, four more than in the previous winter timetable period. New to the network is Bremen in Northern Germany, which will receive a four-times-weekly service that is aimed at both leisure and business travellers. The service is a resumption: Bremen originally joined the SWISS network in winter 2018/2019, but the flights were subsequently suspended in the light of the corona pandemic. 
SWISS will also be increasing its frequencies from Zurich to various further German cities, with six more weekly flights (compared to winter 2022/2023) to Düsseldorf, four more to Hamburg and an additional two to Hanover.
The Czech capital of Prague and the Romanian capital of Bucharest will also have their SWISS services substantially expanded in the coming winter period, receiving an additional seven and five weekly flights respectively.
Other destinations which will enjoy particularly frequent SWISS service from Zurich this winter include Berlin (52 weekly flights), Barcelona (28 weekly flights), Amsterdam (28 weekly flights) and Athens (19 weekly flights).
Portugal is a further focus in the coming SWISS winter schedules, with the capital Lisbon receiving 14 weekly flights from Zurich and with Porto also served up to 11 times a week.
Last but not least, SWISS service will be resumed on the Zurich-Vienna route, with three flights a day to the Austrian capital. The route will also be operated by sister Lufthansa Group carrier Austrian Airlines with multiple daily flights.
Flight from Geneva
SWISS will also offer its customers a varied range of 21 short and medium-haul destinations from Geneva in the coming winter schedules. Travellers to London, Lisbon, Porto and Athens will enjoy an especially wide choice of flights. The service to Hamburg introduced this summer will also be continued, with four weekly frequencies. And SWISS will further offer attractive services to Geneva from the UK and Scandinavia that are particularly aimed at winter sports guests.
The 2023/2024 winter timetable period will run from 29 October 2023 to 30 March 2024.
