SWISS will operate its new long-haul aircraft, the Boeing 777-300ER, on services between Zurich and São Paulo in the coming 2017/18 winter schedules. Four of SWISS’s seven weekly flights to Brazil’s biggest city will be operated with Boeing 777 equipment from 8 February 2018 onwards, while the remaining three continue to be operated with Airbus A340-300 aircraft; and one month later, on 9 March, the service will become an all-Boeing 777 operation.
SWISS will also be expanding its Zurich-based European services in the 2017/18 winter schedules. Wroclaw newly joins the network, with three weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
The service introduced this summer between Zurich and Niš (Serbia) will be continued in the winter months with twice-weekly Friday and Sunday service.
SWISS with its sister airline Edelweiss will introduce a new Tuesday service to Orlando (USA) on 16 January 2018; and frequencies will be increased on the existing Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) and Cape Town (South Africa) routes.
