Swiss is the latest airline to resume flights to Shanghai, with a service from Zurich set to return next month.

The airline will operate one weekly flight from March 3, with the service increasing to three-times-weekly from April onwards.

The flights will mainly be operated using B777-300ER aircraft, with A340-300 aircraft also used.

Swiss suspended its services between Zurich and Shanghai in April 2022 due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. It has since only operated cargo flights on this route.

Chief commercial officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour commented:

“We’re delighted that we’ll soon be providing our customers with flights between Zurich and Shanghai again.

“It’s a high priority for us to meet the demand that is now growing again for travel between these two major business centres and beyond. Shanghai remains one of the key points in our network in terms of both inbound and outbound travellers.”

Last week British Airways announced plans to resume flights to Shanghai from April 23, while Virgin Atlantic will restart its route on May 1.

Swiss will also increase its services to Hong Kong from five to six weekly frequencies in the summer 2023 schedules.
