27 Mideast flights in new Swissair timetable


Swissair has unveiled its new Middle East winter timetable offering a choice of 27 weekly flights to Zurich.

Speaking at a press conference in Dubai, the airline's area manager for the Arabian Gulf, Felix Rodel, said: "We are here for the long haul in the Middle East and we will continue to serve our loyal customers and build on our rich 50-year-old heritage of quality service in the Middle East."

The new timetable offers daily flights from Dubai, six weekly fights from Cairo, three weekly flights from Riyadh, Muscat, Karachi and Abu Dhabi and two weekly flights from Jeddah.

Swissair, which operated six weekly flights to Zurich from Beirut, has cancelled its operation in this sector. One weekly flight from Jeddah and Cairo each have been cancelled. In addition, frequency has been reduced by two flights from Abu Dhabi and Karachi.
