Swiss is to further expand its route network in its 2018 summer schedules with attractive new destinations served from Zurich.
New flights will be introduced to the French cities of Bordeaux and Marseille; service will be resumed to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine; and Swiss will also offer summer service for the first time to Wroclaw in Southern Poland.
Swiss will offer 12 weekly services to Bordeaux in Southwest France from the end of next March onwards. The first such flight will operate on 26 March. The new services will consist of two daily flights on Mondays to Fridays and single daily Saturday and Sunday flights. Bordeaux lies in a popular tourist region that is famed for both its wines and its extensive cultural attractions. The region is important in economic terms, too, and has become particularly prominent in recent years in the field of future technologies such as molecular sciences and space research.
Swiss will also be introducing a new thrice-weekly service between Zurich and Marseille on 21 April 2018. The flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Mediterranean port city is the gateway to Provence, one of Europe’s most attractive and popular holiday regions, and is also the starting point for many cruise vacations.
Non-stop Swiss services to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev will resume on 26 March 2018. Swiss withdrew its previous Zurich-Kiev flights in October 2014. The new service will consist of four weekly flights operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The new thrice-weekly service to Wroclaw in Southern Poland which will commence with the start of the 2017/18 winter schedules will also be continued in the 2018 summer timetable period. The service, which will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, is being introduced in response to strong demand from the growing Swiss-Polish business community.
