Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has launched its inaugural service between Bristol and Zurich. Customers arriving from Zurich were presented with goody bags from Visit West, containing treats and information showcasing the local area. Meanwhile, customers on the inaugural service to Zurich enjoyed treats of Swiss chocolates.

“SWISS is very pleased to add Bristol as our 8th airport in the UK, from where we offer direct flights to Zurich and beyond,” said Heinrich Lange, Senior Director Sales Northern Europe, Lufthansa Group Airlines. “Our initial timetable has primarily been designed to enable customers a convenient arrival into the Swiss Alps. From April onwards we are increasing our frequency and as of June we will operate three weekly flights Bristol-Zurich. Our new Bristol services offer convenient schedules between Bristol and Switzerland’s financial centre and an easy access to our global network of over 110 destinations.”

Shaun Browne, Head of Airline Relations, Bristol Airport, commented: “This is an incredibly exciting day for Bristol Airport and the region. SWISS is a major global airline and this decision shows confidence in the region. The regular scheduled service between Bristol and Switzerland opens up a wide range of European and worldwide connections to our customers. Zurich is a great city whether for business or leisure and the link between the cities allows us to promote the South West and Wales region to inbound visitors from Switzerland and beyond. We see great potential for this service and are delighted SWISS have already confirmed they will be increasing the frequency to three flights a week in the summer and we will continue to work with SWISS on other exciting route opportunities for the future.”
