Switzerland plane tickets & flights

  

 

  

 

As we know, Switzerland is a cool place in all terms: attractive and cold, but with friendly civilized people that will warm you up when the temperatures outside are low.

Because it is in the heart of Europe, it can be easily reached from many countries on the continent.

Switzerland's Zürich International Airport is one of Europe's most important aerial gateways to the rest of the World after the giant London, Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin, Madrid, Milano, Rome airports.

 

Domestic flights

There are some flights between the big cities, but overall the rail and road connection is very good and less costly than flying.

 

International flights

Very good connections from Zürich and Geneva/Genf/Genève, but also from other cities.

Zürich has the main airport in the country. It is also a large European hub - a good place for changing airplanes, airlines even and fly to the Middle East, Asia or North America.

 

Airlines serving Switzerland

 

Since Swissair has went bankrupt in 2002, the country doesn't have a flag carrier anymore.

A new airline, called Swiss was launched by the German giant Lufthansa and there are several smaller, rather regional, charter and low cost airlines that serve Switzerland.

Let us take a look now!

  

easyJet Switzerland

It is based in Meyrin and its main base is at Geneva International Airport.

11 planes serve about 40 destinations in Europe and North Africa (Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, Marrakech in Morocco).

 

Edelweiss Air

Charter airline from Kloten. It has bases at Zürich and Geneva.

With 4 planes they serve a tremendous 54 destinations (as of late November, 2009). Most destinations are warm, summer holiday destinations.

   

Swiss European Air Lines

Swiss European Air Lines is a Star Alliance member and is owned by Swiss.

Has a hub at Zürich and focuses on air travel to Geneva and Basel.

 

Swiss International Air Lines/Swiss

Subsidiary of Lufthansa.

Has a hub at Zürich and focuses on Geneva and the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg.

It is part of the Star Alliance and serves 80 destinations.

Might be the airline of your choice if you are travelling to the country. It has the biggest coverage and has excellent connections with other carriers from the same alliance.

Except Europe it also flies to Africa, North America, South America, Asia and the Middle East.

In the past they changed destinations quite frequently, therefore make sure you are up to date with where they fly to.

The airline was founded in 2002, just after the collapse of Swiss Air, but between 2002 and 2009 it had already launched and terminated 25 of its destinations.

 

Various other carriers

Because it is ethnically mixed, composed primarily of French, German and Italian population, the best way to fly in and out of Switzerland is with French, German, Italian and Austrian airlines.

This little country is well connected to these surrounding countries, among the main airlines that fly to Switzerland we could mention: Lufthansa, Air France, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines.
