Swiss International Airlines has announced plans to serve Washington Dulles International Airport from Zurich beginning next spring.
Service is expected to begin March 29 using 236-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
“We’re delighted that this will help further strengthen Switzerland as a place to visit and do business, and will offer our customers an even more attractive air-travel network,” said Tamur Goudarzi Pour, the airline’s chief commercial officer.
SWISS Flight 70 is slated to depart Zurich each day at 1:45 p.m., arriving at Dulles at 5 p.m. Return Flight 71 will depart Dulles at 8:30 p.m., arriving in Zurich at 10:40 a.m. the next morning.
SWISS is owned by Lufthansa Group. It is a member of the Star Alliance, which also includes Dulles’s dominant carrier, United Airlines, which currently serves Zurich with daily service in a joint venture with SWISS.
