SWISS To Increase Winter Long-Haul Offerings

SWISS has announced plans to increase its long-haul offerings for the Winter 2023/24 season as plans begin industry-wide for this time period.

The carrier is enjoying a significant level of demand for this period as well as for the continuing Summer 2023 season as well.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

For SWISS, we can expect to see the following route upgrades take place for the Winter 2023/24 season:

  • Zurich-Miami – Increased to 14x weekly.
  • Zurich-Shanghai – Increased to 6x weekly.
  • Zurich-Singapore – Increased to daily flights.
  • Zurich-Cairo – Increased to daily flights.

With these upgrades in mind, it means that the airline will offer a total of 21 long-haul destinations for the Winter campaign.

We are definitely seeing an increase compared to the ongoing Summer 2023 season, which will be good news for SWISS.

The Airline Is Pleased To Expand Offerings Further…

Commenting on these upgrades was Tamur Goudarzi Pour, the Chief Commercial Officer of SWISS:

“SWISS is currently experiencing a lot of demand and a still strong desire to travel, despite all the economic and political uncertainties”.

“We’re very pleased to be further expanding our range of long-haul services this coming winter, within the overall framework of our long-term network planning, to offer our customers an even more attractive choice of flights.”

“But while doing so, it remains our paramount objective to provide our passengers with stable and reliable flight operations.”

This news is good news for SWISS, as they want to offer as much capacity as possible that they know they will fill up during the Winter season.

The reasoning behind this is the fact that the Summer season is far busier, so creatively upgrading frequencies on certain flights is the right way to go.

For now, all eyes are on SWISS to see how much further they will take their Winter 2023/24 schedule, particularly on the shorter-haul perspective too.
