Singapore Airlines is going to reduce ZRH from daily to 5 flights a week.

It is already known that JAL suspends operations into ZRH until 31 May 03.

Continental will combine most ZRH and GVA flights together.

Thai Airways is combining ZRH from time to time with other European destinations such as FCO or CDG since 3 of 4 MD11 are AOG in BKK.

It is not yet known if Air Canada will come back to ZRH this summer.

As you see, a lot of "sad" ZRH news. Hope we will get some good news as well ...

From time to time? So you mean every now and then they do, e.g. BKK-FCO-ZRH vv.? Why? What's AOG?

At least ZRH isn't doing as bad as HKG though. LOL.

Hey guys it's bad all over at the moment. I think the reduction is global. Both JAL and ANA have cut flights out of Narita, CX and SQ have reduced flights into Japan. The US air carriers have cut down too...it's a sign of the times.

Of course the question is, when the world sorts itself out, how many of these flights will be re-instated? Some airlines may figure that it's better to run less flights with higher load factors, and anyway, if they re-instated them they would have to rehire a load of staff that they just sent home....

AOG means that aircrafts are grounded due to different reasons. Well, I think it could be maintenance. I don't know the exact routing. But I think it has to be kind of BKK-ZRH-FCO-ZRH-BKK. Guess they only do that on day 1/3/5/6 since the other three days are in scheduled combination with GVA anyway.

Avion, I think where TG is concerned, most probably it will be temporary only. Regarding Singapore Airlines I don't know.

But do u know when SQ will reduce to 5x weekly? Immediately?

Hope its just because of SARS and not here to stay.

I would think SQ's flights to ZRH would be reduced to 5x weekly until the end of May (perhaps even until June, but no later than that), as all the European flights that they have reduced will be so until May 31, after which they will restore services to what they were prior to the cuts.

Thanks for the explanation Swissgabe.

I have no idea when CO's plan will come into effect, probably in the coming days?

Btw, Swissgabe, where did you get all this info from? Just checked the SQ website but couldn’t find anything on the ZRH reductions.

Avion , as Hkg82 pointed out. I think it is for the moment only but I can't confirm. May and June both are very low month in Switzerland (and Europe) and I could think that SQ is coming back daily to ZRH this summer.

Regarding CO, I got this news from a colleague working at ZRH airport and I don't know the exact details. I didn't find any press released yet. But as soon as I have them I would post them here ...

I understand it as being temporary measures, for the most part, due to SARS in Asia and the war.

Weird for CO. Their flights are still loaded as "normal" operations turn-around to ZRH and GVA.
