Edelweiss Air’s Zurich to Las Vegas
On 5 May, Zurich Airport celebrated the launch of Edelweiss Air’s weekly flights to Las Vegas with a special event at the gate. On hand to cut the celebratory cake’s first slice is Karl Kistler, CEO, Edelweiss.
Celebrations continued at Las Vegas Airport, which welcomed Edelweiss Air’s inaugural flight from Zurich with another marvellous cake. The new long-haul link will be operated by the carrier’s A330-300 and will see a frequency increase to twice-weekly from 6 June.
