Switzerland’s national airline will add four new flight routes in 2024, including two to North America.


Starting on March 28th, 2024, the airline will fly daily from its main hub in Zurich to the US capital, Washington DC, the company announced on Tuesday.

The westbound service will depart from Zurich at 13:00 and arrive in Washington at 16:20 (both times local), while the eastbound service will leave the US capital at 20:45 and arrive in Zurich at 10:50 the following day.

These times may change with the introduction of the daylight savings time in Switzerland on March 31st.
