London City Airport has welcomed the restoration of connections to Zurich, with SWISS to resume flying to Switzerland’s largest city from today (Wednesday 12th May).
SWISS will operate two rotations per week to Zurich initially, although their schedule will increase in line with the anticipated surges in demand for leisure and business travel as travel restrictions are relaxed in the UK and Europe this summer.
Commenting on the resumption of SWISS flights, London City Airport’s head of aviation, Anne Doyere, said: “We are delighted that SWISS has returned to the airport to restore an important business and leisure connection between London City and Zurich.
“Zürich is a key centre for international business, finance and tourism, so this is very positive news for our passengers who can once again enjoy safe and speedy journeys to Zurich direct from the heart of London.”
SWISS will gradually scale up their routes and schedules from London City ahead of the autumn as leisure and business traffic picks up. The Swiss national carrier expects to restore its route from LCY to Geneva (GVA) in August.
Tamur Goudarzi Pour, chief commercial officer, Swiss International Air Lines, said: “We are very pleased to resume connections from Zurich and Geneva to London City.
“Its proximity to the city center and its convenient size with short distances make London City Airport equally attractive for our business and leisure travelers.”
