Swiss International Air Lines
Swiss International Air Lines
AG (short Swiss, stylized as SWISS) is the national airline[6] of Switzerland
operating scheduled services in Europe and to North America, South America, Africa and Asia. Its main hub is Zurich
Airport, with a focus city operation at Geneva Airport. The airline was formed after the 2001 bankruptcy of Swissair, Switzerland's former flag carrier. Swiss is a member of the Star Alliance. It is a subsidiary of the Lufthansa
Group, with headquarters at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg near Basel, Switzerland, and an office at Zurich Airport
Zurich Airport
in Kloten, Switzerland.[7] The company's registered office is in Basel.[8] The airline uses the IATA
code LX that it inherited from the Swiss regional airline Crossair
(Swissair's code was SR). The ICAO
code is SWR, inherited from Swissair
(Crossair's was CRX), in order to keep international traffic rights.

Beginnings[edit] Swiss was formed after the 2002 bankruptcy of Swissair, Switzerland's former flag carrier. Crossair
had 40% of its income come from the defunct Swissair. The new airline's losses totaled US$1.6 billion from startup until 2005. Swissair's biggest creditors, Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse
and UBS, sold part of Swissair's assets to Crossair, the regional counterpart to the transatlantic Swissair. At the time, both Swissair and Crossair
were under the same holding company, called SAirGroup. Crossair
later changed its name to Swiss International Air Lines, and the new national airline started its operations officially on 31 March 2002. The airline was first owned by institutional investors (61.3%), the Swiss Confederation
Swiss Confederation
(20.3%), cantons and communities (12.2%) and others (6.2%). Swiss also owns subsidiary companies Swiss Sun (100%) and Crossair
Europe (99.9%). It has a total of 7,383 employees.[9] According to Marcel Biedermann, the managing director of intercontinental markets for Swiss, there were three possibilities: stay independent as a niche carrier, shrink to an unrecognisable level, or attach onto another airline group. The last choice was taken. Swiss talked to Air France-KLM, British Airways, and Lufthansa. However, Swiss was tied up with debt and an uncertain future, and seemed to be an unattractive investment. After merging with KLM, Air France
said they were too busy to deal with Swiss joining them[dubious – discuss]. British Airways
British Airways
was open, and Oneworld
partners thought Zurich Airport
Zurich Airport
would be a viable alternative hub for London Heathrow.

After almost a year of disputes, Swiss was finally accepted into the Oneworld
airline alliance, after having been blocked by British Airways, which competes with Swiss on many long-haul routes. On 3 June 2004, Swiss announced its decision not to join Oneworld
because they did not want to integrate their current frequent flyer program into British Airways' Executive Club. Furthermore, Swiss thought the relationship was one sided, where British Airways
British Airways
sapped out the benefits of the airline, but they would get no return. Recovery[edit] The airline annually halved its losses, and in 2006 recorded a net profit of $220 million. The net profit for 2007 was $570 million. Biedermann stated in the March 2008 edition of "Airways", that "this was the beginning of getting our house back in order." He said that help was needed and looked up to Lufthansa
as a comparison, so their coming together was natural, even with their differences. Even with the smaller network, Swiss carries the same number of passengers as they did in 2002. On 22 March 2005 Lufthansa Group
Lufthansa Group
confirmed its plan to take over Swiss, starting with a minority stake (11%) of a new company set up to hold Swiss shares called Air Trust. The Swiss operations were gradually integrated with Lufthansa's from late 2005, and the takeover was completed on 1 July 2007. Swiss joined Star Alliance
Star Alliance
and became a member of Lufthansa's Miles and More
Miles and More
frequent flyer program on 1 April 2006. The airline has set up a regional airline subsidiary called Swiss European Air Lines. This carrier has its own air operator's certificate. The two independently operating divisions Swiss Aviation Training and Swiss WorldCargo (using the belly capacity of passenger planes) are also owned by Swiss. In 2008 Swiss International Air Lines
Swiss International Air Lines
acquired Edelweiss Air[10] [11] and Servair[12] - now Swiss Private Aviation. From February 2011, Swiss Private Aviation
Swiss Private Aviation
ceased to operate as a result of internal reconstruction. The company recommended Lufthansa
Private Jet Service as a succedaneum.[13] In 2007 Swiss placed an order for 9 Airbus A330-300s to eventually replace the existing A330-200s. The A330-300 is more environmentally friendly[citation needed] and has three-class seating. As each A330-300 arrived, an A330-200 was retired from the fleet. The first A330-300 jet was put into service from Zurich
to New York-JFK in April 2009. In spring 2010 Swiss operated 5 A330-300s for mid- and long-haul routes. The remaining 4 A330-300 aircraft joined the fleet in 2011. Takeover by Lufthansa[edit] Following Lufthansa Group
Lufthansa Group
takeover,[14] the regional fleet was changed from Crossair's Embraer
ERJs and Saabs to Avro RJs, which are flown by a wholly owned subsidiary, Swiss Global Air Lines. The rest of the fleet, apart from the regional jets, was also rationalised and is now mainly Airbus aircraft apart from the Boeing 777, which is operated by Swiss Global Air Lines. The airline reconstruction also caused Swiss to renegotiate their supplier contracts, which include ground handling, maintenance, food service, and labour. The shareholders of Swiss received a performance-based option for their shares. Payment will be in 2008, and the amount will depend on how well Lufthansa's shares compare with competitors' shares. Lufthansa
continues to maintain Swiss as a separate brand. In 2010, Swiss and Lufthansa
were named in a European Commission investigation into price-fixing, but were not fined due to acting as a whistleblower.[15] On 18 August 2011, Swiss announced a new logo for their company,[16] resembling the logo of the defunct Swissair.[17] The new logo led to vivid online criticism, within days several protest groups on social media platforms appeared.[18][19] Corporate affairs[edit] Head office[edit]

has its operational headquarters at EuroAirport
Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg[20][21] near Basel, Switzerland.[9] This French-Swiss binational airport is located on French territory and has customs-free access to Switzerland.[22] The Swiss head office is located in the Swiss section of the airport, and it is only accessible from Switzerland.[23] According to the commercial register, the legal seat is in Basel
itself.[24] The current Swiss International Air Lines
Swiss International Air Lines
head office was formerly the head office of Crossair. In 2002 the name "Crossair" was replaced with "Swiss International Air Lines" on the head office building.[25] As of 2004 the Basel
area offices housed about 1,000 employees, while the Zurich
area offices housed about 850 employees. When Swiss started as a company, about 1,400-1,500 worked at the Basel
offices.[26] Subsidiaries[edit] The following companies are part of the Swiss International Air Lines Group:

Customer services[edit] On all intra-European flights, Swiss offers drink services. Depending on the time of day and the scheduled flight duration, Swiss may also offer snack services. On shorter flights, cold snacks are offered, and hot snacks are offered on longer flights. The Europe economy class services include sandwiches from a Swiss bakery.[27] In addition, Swiss chocolate is provided to passengers prior to landing on most flights. Swiss maintains the Airtrain service, a shuttle from Zürich Airport to Basel
SBB railway station.[28] Swiss previously operated its Swissbus service from Ottawa Railway Station
Ottawa Railway Station
to Dorval Airport

in Montreal for its customers.[29]

announced an order for 48 new aircraft, several of them for Swiss.[44] In March 2013, Swiss ordered six Boeing 777-300ERs. On 12 March 2015, Swiss confirmed that the Lufthansa Group
Lufthansa Group
had ordered an additional three Boeing 777-300ERs for Swiss.[45] The 777s will be operated by, and wetleased back from, Swiss Global Air Lines.[46] Swiss has confirmed that all 777-300ERs will have an updated First Class cabin with eight private suites and a 32-inch TV, 62 business class seats which convert into a fully flat bed that is over two meters long, and 270 economy seats, with 10 seats abreast in a 3-4-3 layout, using the same seat pitch and width on its A330s and A340s on the 777s.[47] The first of these new airliners was delivered in January 2016[48] and is Swiss's first Boeing aircraft.[49]The Boeing aircraft will replace most of Swiss' current A340 aircraft, the remaining five A340s will be refurbished. In 2014, Swiss announced it would refurbish its A320 fleet, with new interiors and the older A320s and A321s will be replaced by A320/A321neos. The A319s, along with Swiss Global Air Lines' Avro fleet, will be replaced by Bombardier CS300
Bombardier CS300
aircraft in due course. The last remaining Avro RJ100 aircraft, HB-IYZ, completed its last flight, LX7545 from Geneva to Zurich
on 15 August 2017. [50] Swiss' first CS300 (to replace RJ100s plus older A319/A320s) entered service at Geneva on 1 June 2017 - with its maiden commercial flight as Geneva - London Heathrow. Swiss was the launch customer of the entire CSeries family of aircraft, with its first CSeries aircraft, a CS100, delivered to the airline in June 2016, registered HB-JBA. The first commercial flight it performed was Zurich
- Paris CDG. Retired fleet[edit]
