SWISS further expands its network for summer 2022 and offers  new destinations  

SWISS is to further expand its range of scheduled services next summer, and will be  adding six new destinations to its European route network. From Zurich SWISS will newly  serve Bologna, Nantes, Sofia, Odessa and Vilnius, while Geneva will see the addition of a  new Brussels service. SWISS will offer a total of 119 destinations from Zurich and Geneva  in its 2022 summer schedules. Within Europe the focus will be on leisure and visiting friends-and-relatives destinations and the continent’s main centres, while the SWISS  intercontinental network will put a particular emphasis on North American destinations.  SWISS expects to restore its services to around 80 per cent of their 2019 capacities by the  2022 third-quarter period. 

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) plans to further expand its range of scheduled services for  the 2022 summer season. The airline will serve a total of 119 destinations from Zurich and  Geneva next summer, 93 within Europe and 26 in its intercontinental network. SWISS travellers  from Zurich will have a choice of 92 destinations, while customers in the Geneva region can  choose from 46. Within Europe the focus will be on leisure and visiting-friends-and-relatives  destinations and on the continent’s main centres, while the SWISS intercontinental network will  put a particular emphasis on North American destinations. SWISS plans to restore its services to  around 80 per cent of their 2019 capacities by the 2022 third-quarter period. Of the 91 aircraft in  the SWISS fleet, up to 59 short-haul aircraft (wet leases included) should be deployed in the 2022  summer schedules, along with up to 26 long-haul aircraft on intercontinental routes. 

“While the pandemic situation is still tense, we remain confident that we will be able to further  substantially expand our range of services for next summer under improved overall parameters,”  says SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour. “Our aim is to offer our customers a  comprehensive and varied choice of SWISS flights. At the same time, the stability and the  reliability of our schedules will remain one of our paramount priorities.” 

Five new European destinations from Zurich  

From Zurich, SWISS plans to offer its customers a choice of 66 short-haul and 26 long-haul  destinations in next summer’s schedules. These will include five new European destinations.  From the end of March onwards SWISS will newly serve Bologna, the capital of Northern Italy’s 

Emilia-Romagna region, Nantes in Western France, the Bulgarian capital of Sofia and the  Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. The port city of Odessa in Southern Ukraine will also receive  scheduled SWISS services from next July onwards. The most frequently-served European  destinations from Zurich next summer will include Berlin, Hamburg, London Heathrow and  

Amsterdam, while the biggest year-on-year increase in capacities will be seen on the Porto,  Palermo, Tallinn and Billund routes.  

On the long-haul front, SWISS will be putting a clear focus on expanding its frequencies to and  from North America in its 2022 summer schedules. New York (JFK), Boston and Chicago will  each receive twice-daily services, compared to the once-daily frequencies of summer 2021.  SWISS will also be restoring the services to Delhi and Mumbai in India which were suspended in  view of pandemic developments. The new twice-weekly service to Beirut which was introduced in  winter 2021/22 will also be continued in the 2022 summer schedules, as will the present Zurich Buenos Aires service via São Paulo consisting of two weekly flights. 

Geneva-New York services expanded  

SWISS will be expanding its services from Geneva, too, in next summer’s schedules. In addition  to long-haul service to New York, travellers from Geneva will be offered a choice of 45 European  destinations. These will include a new non-stop SWISS service between Geneva and the Belgian  

capital of Brussels to supplement the existing service on the route by sister Lufthansa Group  carrier Brussels Airlines. SWISS will also be raising its Geneva-New York frequencies to up to  seven weekly flights. London Heathrow, Athens, Lisbon, Porto and Frankfurt will be among the  European destinations served most frequently from Geneva in the 2022 summer schedules. 

Two-step publication  

The 2022 summer timetable period will run from 27 March to 30 October. For greater plannability,  SWISS’s 2022 summer schedules will be published in two steps. The schedules up to and  including 31 May 2022 are published today (14 December), while the definitive schedules for  1 June to the end of October 2022 will be published on 12 January. Flights for the new SWISS  destinations are bookable from today, however, for the whole summer timetable period. Any  customers whose flight is cancelled may rebook free of charge or have their ticket fully refunded.
