Swiss connects Zurich with Goa by adding code share on Edelweiss service

Lufthansa owned, Swiss International Air Lines has connected one of India’s best known leisure destinations, Goa, directly with its Zurich hub by adding its “LX” code to the regular charter flights operated by its subsidiary Edelweiss Air.

The Edelweiss service has traditionally been geared towards incoming tourist groups. The code-share agreement facilitates booking access to these flights for individual customers.

From Zurich, Goa passengers can connect on to the global network of Swiss.

Members of the airline’s frequent flyer program Miles & More will accrue miles on this route and the ground services will be on par with other Swiss stations.

The once a week service is operated under flight number LX8958 with an Airbus A-330 aircraft in a 2-class configuration of 32 business and 275 economy seats. The flight schedule is:

Departing Zurich Sundays 17:35 arriving Goa Monday 07:00
Departing Goa Mondays 08:00 Arrival Zurich (via Male) 17:25
