Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is adding Gdansk in Poland and Herinsdorf in Germany to its European route network for summer 2019.
The addition of the new non-stop routes are expected to help the airline provide an even more attractive range of air services from and to its Zurich hub.
SWISS will provide a four-times-weekly service between Zurich and Gdansk, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The route will be operated by the new SWISS C Series aircraft and with Embraer 190 equipment of partner airline Helvetic Airways.
Gdansk will join Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw as the airline’s fourth Polish destination.
The port city on the country’s Baltic coast lies within an attractive tourist region. The surrounding area is also a major center of business and industry, and home to corporations in the chemicals and pharmaceuticals segments and in high-tech sectors such as electronics, telecommunications and information technology. The region further hosts a number of shared service centers, which are coming to play an increasingly important role in its economy.
SWISS will also be offering a new weekly service to Heringsdorf on the island of Usedom between next May and September. The Baltic beach resort is a popular holiday destination, especially in the summer months. The new Saturday service will be operated with a SWISS CS100 aircraft.
The 2019 summer schedule comes into effect on March 31, 2019. The new services are bookable now.
SWISS is currently serving over 100 destinations in 43 countries worldwide from Zurich, Geneva and Lugano, and carrying some 17 million passengers a year with its 90-aircraft fleet.
