How's Helvetic Airways Doing?

Hello everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone knew how that new Swiss airline "Helvetic" is doing. It's supposed to be a low-cost carrier, but their prices aren't all that low, in my opinion. 99 euros per segment plus taxes gives you average ticket prices in the 200 to 300 euro range...not exactly cheap for a quick hop to Vienna, for example. LX and OS both offer lower fares on that particular route.

Has anybody flown Helvetic? How was it? How are they doing (loads, yields, etc.)?

Thanks for your input!
Patrick

You are very right, I find them very very expensive too, unless you are a business traveller and need a one-day return (although also OS has cut the Sunday rule now on most tickets).

Hello

As far as I know they need only a load factor of 50% to fly profitable, according to a Helvetic representative.
I am sure they achieve this goal.

Are they charging 99 euros on all routes? I saw the F100 on take off on my way to the airport.  Smile
