Swissair Is 70 Today

Tue Mar 27, 2001 6:51 am

Hey,

I can't believe no one remembered what day it is today!! Today, Monday the 26th of March 2001, Swissair is exactly 70 years old!

A short history lesson: On the 26th of March 1931, Balair and Ad Astra Aero from Zurich merged to create Swissair. The original capital was 800 000 Swiss Francs with 64 employees.

I just hope Swissair will survive as THE leading world airline for another 70 years!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Kind Regards,
Jeremiah Teahan

Goodbye SR-LX MD-11 / 6th of March 1991 to the 31st of October 2004
