SINGAPORE, 5 February 2024: Swiss International Air Lines will expand its network in the 2024 summer schedule by adding flights to South Korea’s capital, Seoul.
Alongside the already announced new intercontinental destinations of Washington DC (USA) and Toronto, Canada, SWISS will expand its long-haul network in the east by connecting the South Korean capital of Seoul with Zurich, Switzerland.
Seoul, the capital of South Korea, will receive its first-ever SWISS services on 7 May 2024.
“We are delighted to be further growing our network,” says SWISS chief commercial officer Heike Birlenbach. “As well as our new long-haul destinations of Washington, DC and Toronto, which we’ve already announced, we’ll be adding the extremely attractive destination of Seoul. The capital of South Korea has a lot to offer leisure and business travellers alike. And our new Seoul service will help us meet our customers’ needs for nonstop services to and from the world’s key cities.”
SWISS will schedule a three-weekly nonstop service between Zurich and Seoul using an Airbus A340 configured with first, business, premium economy and economy classes. The eastbound flight LX122 will leave Zurich at 1340 on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, landing in Seoul at 0825 the following day. The westbound LX123 service will depart from Seoul on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 0955, arriving in Zurich at 1650.
