The launch of SWISS’s first non-stop flight between Zurich and Beirut takes place on December 2. Switzerland will fly to Lebanon’s cultural and economic centre twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.
Visits to friends and relatives are primarily the target market for the new service.
“As The Airline of Switzerland, we strive to offer our customers a route network that is tailored as closely as possible to their air travel needs,” says SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour. “We are proud that, for the first time in its history, SWISS will now connect the capital of Lebanon directly with Switzerland and our Zurich hub. We hope that our new services will also help the city of Beirut in its reconstruction. And we look forward to bringing more people and more cultures together.”
Edelweiss Air will operate the new Zurich-Beirut services on SWISS’s behalf under a wet-lease agreement from December 2021 to mid-January 2022. Those flights will be operated by Airbus A320’s with a capacity of 174 passengers. Service to Beirut begins with SWISS
SWISS will begin operating these new services at the end of March 2022 with its own aircraft equipment. It takes around four hours to fly from Zurich to Beirut.
You can book all the new services on Swiss.com and on other channels.
