During the past 10 days, two more carriers have introduced flights on the Zurich – Split route: Condor and Chair Airlines.

Edelweiss Air, in cooperation with Swiss Air, have launched flights on the Zurich – Split route right before the holidays. Consequently, flight occupancy will likely be satisfactory since many will be returning home for the holidays. In addition, a number of tourists will probably decide to spend the holidays in Split and the surrounding region.
The Swiss airline will be using their fleet of A320 aircraft for all flights, which have a capacity of 174 seats. Edelweiss Air’s decision to briefly launch a route to Split just in time for the holidays is noteworthy, and Lufthansa may do the same.
