SWISS has announced its plans for the winter schedule which will run from 30th October 2022 to 25th March 2023. The airline will serve more destinations this winter season than were served in the winter before the pandemic, though with fewer frequencies.
SWISS will serve a total of 93 destinations from Zurich and Geneva, with total capacity at some 80% of its 2019 levels. From Zurich, the flag carrier of Switzerland will operate flights to 83 destinations while 26 destinations will be served from Geneva.
SWISS will launch flights to Bristol in Southern England this winter. Bristol will be served once-weekly from February 2023. The new service will be operated with SWISS Airbus A220 equipment and the Embraer E190 aircraft of wet-lease partner Helvetic Airways.
Elsewhere, services to destinations such as Belgrade, Porto, Alicante, Barcelona and Málaga will be expanded.
From Geneva, SWISS will operate flights to 25 European destinations. Service to Scandinavia will be particularly strengthened, with one additional weekly flight to Stockholm and three more weekly frequencies each to Gothenburg and Copenhagen during the winter months. Frequencies will also be increased on the Funchal and Tenerife routes. The most extensively-served destinations from Geneva in the coming winter timetable period include London, Athens, Lisbon, Marrakech, Porto and Nice. The new direct flights to Brussels introduced this summer in collaboration with Brussels Airlines will also be continued. And the services to such classic summer destinations as Larnaca, Faro and Heraklion will be continued until November.
