Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be adding Singapore to its route network in May of 2013. The new long-haul destination, one of Asia’s prime business hubs, will receive daily non-stop service from Zurich using Airbus A340 equipment. SWISS will be further expanding its range of air services to and from Asia next spring. The carrier will introduce daily non-stop flights between Zurich and Singapore on May 12, 2013.
“Singapore is one of Switzerland’s most important intercontinental markets, and one that has seen constant growth over the past few years,” says SWISS CEO Harry Hohmeister. “By providing our new daily non-stop service from Zurich, we aim to meet this substantial demand. In doing so, we’re also continuing our steady long-term investment in the region: Singapore will be SWISS’s eighth Asian destination.” Others are|: Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Delhi, Mumbai, Tokyo, and Bangkok.
SWISS will operate the new route with Airbus A340-300 equipment offering 219 seats. The new flights mark a return to the city-state of sorts: SWISS served Singapore from its foundation until spring 2009, though this previous service was routed via Bangkok.
Zurich – Singapore LX 178 22:45 – 17:10 (the following day)
Singapore – Zurich LX 179 23:05 – 06:10 (the following day)
The new flights will be bookable online and through travel agents starting 8 October.
