LX To Cease GVA-CDG Ops (AF Codeshare)

Sat Mar 12, 2005 2:15 am

Hi all!

Lost in all the LH-Swiss takeover talk was this bit of information that I found in today's media release. It seems SWISS will no longer operate GVA-CDG but rather code-share with Air France on the 10 frequencies that AF offers.

Excerpt from the media release:

A partnership agreement has already been concluded with Air France for the Geneva-Paris route. By May 1 at the latest, the agreement will see the ten daily flights operated by Air France published as codeshare services, while SWISS ceases its own operations on the route. The new arrangement will give SWISS customers a choice of ten frequencies a day between the two cities instead of the present six.

The whole thing is available at: http://www.swiss.com/web/IE6/about-s...press-releases-05.htm?newsid=63666

Pretty interesting development...any comments or other info?

Cheers,
Patrick

So is Air France going to be flying bigger planes to accomodate all the demand then?
