SWISS will be introducing a new thrice-daily weekday service on the route on August 30, offering attractive early-morning and late-evening frequencies for the business travel community along with a midday flight. Weekend services on the route will consist of a Saturday morning and a Sunday evening flight in each direction, catering for the needs of weekend-break travellers.
