SWISS will be restoring several more destinations to its flight schedules in the coming 2020/21 winter timetable period. SWISS aims to serve some 85 per cent of its established destinations, with 21 from Geneva.
In view of the numerous current travel restrictions and quarantine provisions, however, the new schedules will offer only 30 to 40% of the capacities provided for the same period last year. Further adjustments may also be required, depending primarily on future global developments on the quarantine front. SWISS advocates the adoption of rapid-result COVID-19 testing capabilities, to make travel a viable option again and ensure international mobility.
From Geneva SWISS will offer non-stop services to Priština from the beginning of October and to Marrakech from mid-October. Prague will be added at the end of October and Moscow at the beginning of November. Mid-December will see services from Geneva resumed to Malaga, Valencia, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Dublin, Hurghada, Kittilä (Finland), St. Petersburg and London Gatwick. And non-stop SWISS services between Geneva and London City will be restored from February 2021. London Heathrow, Frankfurt and Moscow are among the destinations with the most frequencies from Geneva in the coming winter timetable period.
The finalization and publication of SWISS’s 2020/21 winter schedules also sees a number of flights cancelled which were planned before the pandemic and can now in some cases not be performed. Any customers whose flights are cancelled in this way can rebook free of charge or have their ticket refunded. SWISS will continue to closely monitor further developments in the current global travel restrictions.
