I want to know why Swissair can´t fly to Mexico City or Cancún. They serve Buenos Aires, Santiago, Rio and Sao Paulo from Zurich, and Mexico City is missing.

There is plenty of swiss tourist in Mexico and there is a big market between both countries.

Could you tell me why ?

Many of LH FRA-MEX flights are swiss.

SR get's its Latin connections by flying ZRH-MIA and then feeding to AA's Latin flights. Much more efficient.

According to a forum member, the Swiss 2nd most popular destination country after the U.S. is Mexico. Didn't have a clue of that. Nevertheless, it seems so strange that Swissair doesn't fly to Mexico when the fact speaks for itself.

Swissair used to send their Mexico bound customers via Atlanta through Delta and also via MAD through AeroMexico. Now it seems that American is doing the job for them but I think Zurich should be served directly from Cancun and Mexico City.

Best regards,

Usually there are charter flights from ZRH to CUN operated by Edelweiss and Balair. From BSL and GVA there may be flights operated by other, above all german, charter operators (Condor, LTU).

Are you sure they can't fly to Mexico or is it they choose not to?

They choose not to fly to MEX, because Mexico in not a slot restricted airport (so far).

You are all talking about tourists and charter flights, maybe (and I am only speculating) yelds are too low for mainline service.

Hey there
There are flights from Zürich to Mexico. Balair/CTA the charter daughter of Swissair flies to Cancu, but of course I would love to see a Swissair flight from Zürich to Mexico. But American Airlines is a very good airline for Latin America and Central America, so Swissair passengers uses AA Codeshare to Mexico.
