As RJ100 says correctly, LX
has no more presence at Berne, as obviously there business case doesn't include any Swiss airports except ZRH
At the moment we do have LH
3 times a day to/from MUC
. Those flights are now operated by AirDolomiti, the funny part is that it will soon be a LH
/LX codeshare as all LX
flights getting LH
numbers. They actually use the ATR42-500 but the intention is, once the crews have the experience at BRN
, to use also the ATR72 as specially the morning flights BRN
and the evening one MUC
are consequently sold out.
Darwin Airline flies LUG
, for the moment once a day. Yesterday was the official press conference and the second daily flight to LCY
was launched. The schedule is now LUG
in the morning and BRN
in the evening. For the winter season those flights are flown on behalf of Darwin by Skywork Airlines, using their Do328. In April it will be back to the SAAB 2000. As the plane stays several hours on ground in BRN
during the morning and the evening rotation, the SAAB will perform an extensive charter program next year going to several Mediterranean destinations.
Cirrus used to due it this year with the EMB170 but is out of business for next year. Olbia will additionally be served next year by AirDolomiti, using a RJ85 and Preveza by an Aegean RJ100, both flights once weekly during summer season.
This winter we get the first time two seasonal scheduled routed, BHX
with a Q400 and SOU
with an RJ100, both destinations three times weekly by FlyBe. There is an additional winter charter program that was never more extensive before, also bringing Titan Airways with the BAe146 and more FlyBe's, most of them on Saturday. The Malev F70 was unfortunately cancelled due to lack of aircraft. You may also check out www.alpar.ch

It seems that BRN
is over the worst after all those airlines leaving over the last years, just remembering Crossair/Swiss, Swisswings, Air Alps, EAE, Intersky, Cirrus on scheduled and for sure Dan Air. The airport management is currently negotiating with several airlines, like AF
. I hope, I can post some good news in the near future.
