Swiss International Airlines will add a six-times weekly service to San Francisco this summer, and is also increasing capacity on its Manchester-Zurich route in May.
The carrier will commence the new San Francisco service to the Californian city on June 2. There are currently no direct services from Zurich to San Francisco – options from the UK include United Airlines, Virgin and BA from London Heathrow.
From May 3 Swiss is also swapping its A319s currently serving the Manchester-Zurich route for larger A320 aircraft, which it says will increase capacity on the route by 16 percent.
The carrier recently introduced a six-times daily service from Heathrow to Geneva (operated by a mixture of Swiss and Bmi aircraft), but has cut flights from London City to the Swiss city to four flighst per day (see online news November 23, 2009).
