Swiss adds Zurich-Bristol route for winter 2022/23

Swiss is adding a new flight between Zurich and Bristol in the UK as part of its 2022/23 winter schedule.

The Lufthansa Group-owned carrier said it will offer 93 destinations from its Zurich and Geneva hubs this winter, with overall capacity reaching 80% of the airline’s 2019 levels.

Swiss’s Zurich-Bristol service will be launched from February 4, 2023 with one flight per week. The carrier will also continue to operate newly introduced Summer 2022 flights from Zurich to Bologna, Nantes, Sofia and Vilnius during the winter season.

Additional frequencies will be added from Zurich to short-haul destinations such as Belgrade, Porto, Alicante, Barcelona and Malaga. Long-haul services to Asian cities such as Bangkok, Singapore, Delhi and Mumbai will also be increased next winter.

Swiss will serve 25 European destinations from Geneva in winter, including more flights to the Scandinavian cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Copenhagen. The new summer service to Brussels will also continue this winter in collaboration with sister company Brussels Airlines.

Commercial Director Tamur Goudarzi Pour said the airline was focusing on “further stabilization” of services for the winter.

“In Europe, in particular, we offer an attractive choice of destinations for the cold season,” added Pour. “At the same time, however, we have been conservative in our planning and have reduced our flight schedule by a number of frequencies, to ensure that we can keep our schedules as stable as possible.”

The airline’s next winter schedule runs from October 30 to March 26, 2023.
