Edelweiss and Swiss plan a short return to Split Airport in December 2020 and January 2021.
Although Edelweiss operates regular flights to Split only in the summer flight schedule, this Swiss company has announced flights on the Zurich - Split route for December this and January next year. Tickets are on sale on the official websites of Edelweiss and Swiss which has a code-share on this route.
Edelweiss will fly three flights to and from Split in December, on Saturday, December 19th, Wednesday, December 23rd, and Saturday, December 26th. The planes will take off from Zurich on all three flights during the morning hours. Three flights are announced in the first half of January as well, more precisely, on Saturday, January 2nd, Wednesday, January 6th, and Saturday, January 9th. Edelweiss will then return to Split Airport on the beginning of summer flight schedule, in April 2021.
As a reminder, in last 10 days two more carriers have announced the introduction of flights on the Zurich - Split route: the German Condor and Chair Airlines.
Edelweiss, in cooperation with Swiss, will offer flights on the Zurich - Split - Zurich route just in time of holidays, so it is to be expected that the occupancy of the aircraft will be satisfactory given that many citizens will return home at that time and that a certain number of tourists will decide to spend the holidays in Split and the region.
A320 aircraft have been scheduled for all flights (capacity of 174 seats). Edelweiss's decision to launch a route to Split just in time of holidays is certainly positive news.
