SWISS to offer new summer destinations

SWISS is to further expand its Zurich-based network. The airline will offer new non-stop services to Gdansk (Poland) and Heringsdorf (Germany) in its 2019 summer schedules.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will be adding two further European destinations to its 2019 summer schedule. The new routes will help provide an even more attractive range of air services for travelers to and from its Zurich hub.

The Polish city of Gdansk will receive its first-ever SWISS service in summer 2019. Gdansk joins Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw to become SWISS’s fourth Polish destination. The port city on the country’s Baltic coast lies within an attractive tourist region. The surrounding area is a major center of business and industry, and home to corporations in the chemicals and pharmaceuticals segments, as well as in high-tech sectors such as electronics, telecommunications and information technology. The region further hosts a number of shared service centers, which are becoming more and more important for Poland’s economy. SWISS will provide a four-times-weekly service between Zurich and Gdansk, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The route will be operated with the new SWISS C Series aircraft and with Embraer 190 aircraft of partner airline Helvetic Airways.

SWISS will also be offering a new weekly service to Heringsdorf, on the island of Usedom in Germany, between next May and September 2019. The Baltic beach resort is a popular holiday destination, especially during the summer months. The new Saturday service will be operated with a SWISS CS100 aircraft.

The 2019 summer schedule will become effective on March 31, 2019. The new services are now available for booking.
