SWISS has this week revealed the handling of over 500,000 passengers during the busy Christmas & New Year period.

The exact figure in itself is 546,961 passengers across less than 99% of scheduled flights running as planned.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Compared to the previous Christmas & New Year period, SWISS handled 467,955 passengers, which highlights how many more the airline has handled.

Commenting on this achievement was the airline’s Oliver Buchhofer:

“I am delighted that we achieved our objective and were able to almost always maintain our schedules, even over the busy Christmas days”.

“As a result, we were able to get so many of our customers reliably to their family and friends to enjoy the holidays together.”

“Just like the busy summer holiday season, this is always quite a challenge. But, thanks to the excellent and exceptional work and dedication of all our people at SWISS, it’s one that we were able to meet and master once again.”

“The weather proved a particular challenge”.

“Strong winds, frost and snow hampered our flight operations – severely in some cases – and we did experience delays.”

“Also, like the rest of Switzerland, we had our fair share of a wave of colds and flu, and a number of our people had to call in sick.”

“So I’d like to say an even bigger thank-you to all our employees and our partners who did so much for our passengers over the past two weeks, in the air and on the ground.”

All eyes will be on how SWISS’ 2024 will go moving forward.
