operated by Airbus A320-family aircraft except the first morning
flight from Geneva and the last evening departure from Zurich.
With the introduction of the new flights, SWISS will offer direct
service to 21 destinations from Geneva. Eight of these will be served
by SWISS aircraft, while the flights on the other 13 routes will be
operated by partner airlines under codeshare agreements.
