Edelweiss Air

Tue Sep 18, 2001 3:43 am

Hi,

I was due to fly to the USA for a holiday but my travel was cancelled. I went to my travel agency and booked a list minute trip to Cyprus. I'm flying on Edelweiss Air. I really don't know this airline because it only flies out of Zurich, and I live far away from this airport. Does somebody knows anything about Edelweiss?
Thanks for your answer, I'll write a report after my trip!

Hello Dens, nice to hear from you.

I've never flown with Edelweiss so I cannot tell you much about their service.
All I know that their planes look beautiful.
Anyway, enjoy your trip!

I personally haven't flown with them either. But a lot of my friend have and they only told good things about Edelweiss.
So enjoy your trip.

Hello Dens,

Sorry that I can't help you much more than anyone else. From what I heard, they are not perfect (like all charters for that matter of fact) but they are as good if not better than Balair. Their planes are reasonably configured. Not crazy like some charter Airlines (British ones like Britannia come to mind)

where exactly in the Canton of Valais do you come from? Nice to have another Swiss member on these forums.

Hi,

I'm from a small village close to Crans-Montana, in the middle of the Canton of Valais.

Do you know this region?

My favourite airport is GVA too.


Regards,

Dens

Hello Dens,

Yes I do know the region since I used to live about 18km outside of Geneva (until 5 years ago) I am 1/2 Swiss. I now live in Ireland and still return to Geneva several times per year.

You could get more informations at their web site:

Seem they have a great and comfortable lay-out on either A320 and A330 to be a charters.
I think you will get a good flight with them

I use to live in Geneva (Carouge) and Zurich for a long time, but now i'm in Hong Kong. I do fly to gva and zhr often. GVA is one of the best, i think.
