Off to warmer climes: new elements of the timetable
A number of airlines are increasing their connections for the coming winter season, so that you have an even wider choice of flights to soak up the sun or go shopping.
Swiss International Air Lines
Off to warmer climes: SWISS is adding more winter connections to São Paulo and Miami. During the winter timetable period, in addition to the daily evening flights to the Brazilian metropolis São Paulo it will now also be offering a morning flight on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and some Sundays. There will also be two flights a day to Miami for almost the whole of the winter.
The service to Athens introduced in the summer will continue during the winter with five flights a week.
This winter, Air Canada will fly five times a week (instead of the previous four) from Zurich to Toronto.
The seasonal non-stop service from Zurich to Cape Town is being expanded to three flights per week during the South African summer season. Edelweiss now flies on Wednesdays, in addition to the existing flights on Mondays and Fridays, to the South African metropolis.
Delta Air Lines
Delta Air Lines will now be flying from Zurich to New York all year round. The company previously only operated the route in summer. It will be operating Boeing 767-300 planes on this connection, which offer the new business class featuring flat-bed seats.
From 1 January 2015, Oman Air will be offering daily flights instead of the previous four flights a week. The route will still be operated with an Airbus A330. From this date, the flight times will be standardised as follows: flight WY154 will leave Zurich at 21:55 each day and land in Muscat at 07:20 local time on the following day. The return flight is scheduled for 14:05, landing in Zurich at 18:40.
