Helvetic Airways will raise their ticket prices due to the high oil prices. A oneway ticket will now cost 105 Euros instead of 99 Euros +33 Euros taxes. So a return ticket will cost 276 Euros (quite expensive for a "low cost airline"  Laugh out loud )

They will also retire their MD-83 and will abandon the Odette brand. The daily flights to Pristina will now operate with Fokker100.

They also decided to drop the routes from Zurich to Amsterdam and Marseille-Provence.

New routes are Zurich to Ohrid (1x weekly), Skopje (1x daily) and London-Gatwick (1x daily).

The Helvetic fleet now consists of 7 Fokker 100.

So they keep on advertising their fares in Euro, even in Switzerland? I don't know how the swiss think about this, but if I saw a British LCC advertising in Germany with a fare in British pounds, just to make it look cheaper, I would certainly find it poor. Now keep in mind that Helvetic is a swiss airline, advertising in swiss newspapers with their Euro fares.

What is problably a bit unfair is their 33 EUR "Tax". Tax is depending on the departure airport and it is a lot cheaper on most airports than 33 EUR.
Helvetic charged the correct tax at the beginning, but increased it to 33 for all airports later on.
