Swiss International Air Lines About Swiss International Air Lines

Swiss (Swiss International Air Lines) is the flag carrier airline of Switzerland, which was founded in April 2002 as the successor of former Swissair. The company emerged from the regional airline Crossair and is now a subsidiary of Lufthansa. The airline has made a name for itself internationally within a few years. Zurich serves as the home airport and hub. Geneva is a second hub. The airline, known as SWISS, is 100% owned by Lufthansa. In May 2020, the fleet size was 89 Airbuses and Boeing.

Its beginnings were difficult, in particular because of the crisis linked to the attacks of September 11, 2001. The Swiss government then invested heavily to allow the company to recover. The company tries to join the Oneworld alliance in 2004 and is accepted after negotiations. She finally renounced this partnership, highlighting the fact that the relationship with British Airways, a company which expressed reservations about their entry into the alliance, was unequal.

The subsidiaries include Edelweiss Air and Swiss Global Air Lines. SWISS is a member of the Star Alliance and participates in the frequent flyer program Miles & More.
