Swiss International Air Lines AG or SWISS for short is the leading air carrier in Switzerland. The company offers flights to Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, and North America. In general, passengers of the carrier can count on 102 destinations. The company is headquartered at EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg.
The company doesn’t have a lot of hubs. Zurich Airport acts as the major one. A focus city is represented by Geneva Airport.
It’s a relatively young airline started in 2002. Its emergence was provoked by the bankruptcy of the country’s leading airline, Swissair. Respectively, SWISS was created on the basis of Crossair, Swissair’s regional subsidiary.
The company appears to be a member of Star Alliance. Furthermore, it’s part of the Lufthansa Group.
The fleet size of the company doesn’t exceed 90 planes. Airbus definitely dominates the company’s fleet – SWISS has only a limited number of Boeing planes. If you want to learn more about their aircraft, go to the Fleet section of our site to learn all the necessary details on the subject.
