Do you think that switzerland can afford to have a single airline operating on two hubs, like BSL and ZRH?
Would it be possible to take profit from the brand new hub installations of Basel to keep it THE european regional hub and to transform ZRH into THE intercontinental hub, serving only very important european cities?
And what would happen with Geneva?
I think that the BSL hub will remain, as it works very good especially with the transfer times and infrastructure, and the Zurich population and businessmen will insist to have the more direct connections possible troughout europe and the world. But I fear that Swissair will reconcentrate on a european customer market and less on intercontinental travel transiting only in ZRH!
Hope that the situation will clarify soon!
