SWISS is further expanding its route network. The Dutch port city of Rotterdam will receive six-times-weekly service from Zurich from 22 January 2024.
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) plans to further expand its route network in the coming 2023/24 winter schedules. The airline will offer its first-ever non-stop services between Zurich and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The Dutch port city will be served six times weekly from 22 January 2024.
Rotterdam is the Netherlands’ second-largest city and a lively major port. The city itself is famed for its skyline and for such iconic structures as the Erasmus Bridge and the Cube Houses. Its impressive port is among the biggest in the world, and strongly colours the city’s character and feel. Rotterdam also boasts a varied arts scene, top-notch museums such as the Boijmans Van Beuningen and a wide range of shopping and nightlife options. The city is a cultural melting pot, too, and offers a unique blend of the past and the future that makes it a truly fascinating destination.
In adding Rotterdam to its network, SWISS is expanding its connections with the Randstad conurbation in the Western Netherlands. So in addition to its existing Amsterdam flights, SWISS will now offer a further attractive air travel option to and from the country’s economic and cultural centre.
“As The Airline of Switzerland, we see it as our mission to provide our customers with an extensive network of attractive air services, and to steadily further develop and refine this in response to their needs,” says Benedikt Escher, SWISS’s Head of Network Management. “This is what we are constantly striving to do, with all our dedication and energies. And we’re delighted that, in Rotterdam, we will now be adding a further destination to our network that is well worth visiting in every respect.”
Short transits, good connections
The flight between Zurich and Rotterdam takes an hour and 30 minutes. The city’s modestly-sized airport is quick and easy to negotiate. The city centre is around ten minutes away by car (traffic permitting) or 20 minutes by public transport. Rotterdam is about an hour’s drive from Amsterdam and half an hour from The Hague. Swift public transport services are also available to and from both cities.
