Swiss Outlines $5bn Investment Strategy

Swiss International Air Lines is investing billions of dollars in advanced aircraft, product enhancements and an expanded network to further its goal of becoming Switzerland’s “next-generation airline”. On the short- and medium-haul front, the flag carrier will take delivery of 30 Bombardier CS100s from next year onwards, replacing its Avro RJ100 fleet. Meanwhile, its Airbus contingent of aircraft will be further expanded with the arrival of a new A321ceo in 2016. Between 2019 and 2022, Swiss will add 10 new A320neos and five A321neos to replace its older A320 family aircraft. The airline also holds options for a further 10 A320neo family aircraft. Combined with the six 777-300ERs that are set to join the Swiss fleet from 2016 onwards, the new aircraft represent a total investment of some $5.2bn.
