Edelweiss to increase its seasonal non-stop service from Cape Town to Zurich to three weekly flights

Published on : Tuesday, July 8, 2014

Edelweiss“This is a direct result of the increase in demand and popularity for our flights since the start of operation in 2011”, explains Alain Chisari, Edelweiss Chief Commercial Officer. “The third weekly flight will operate every Wednesday between 03 December 2014 and 11 March 2015 to cover the peak season”, adds Chisari.


This means over a period of three months, Edelweiss will increase their capacity by over 30% to and from the mother city. Furthermore, the additional flight will be operated by an Airbus A330-300 from the airline’s sister company Swiss International Air Lines. Operated by Edelweiss crew, the aircraft is equipped with 52 fully lie-flat seats in business class and 183 seats in economy


The airline’s long haul fleet is currently undergoing refurbishment to significantly improve the cabin. Edelweiss Business Class is being equipped with lie-flat seats and a new in-flight entertainment system including sixteen inch screens. Concurrently, Edelweiss is introducing a new premium economy class called Economy Max that will offer passengers fifteen centimetres more legroom as well as many other amenities to ensure a comfortable flight. Edelweiss Economy Class is also receiving a makeover with new seats and a new in-flight entertainment system with touch screen technology. By the end of October when the seasonal flights kick in, the cabin refurbishment will have been completed.

The possibility of combining the daily SWISS flights from Johannesburg to Zurich with the Edelweiss service to/from Cape Town offers the South African traveler more choices and alternatives.
