Swiss Air returns to Changi after four years
It wants slice of region's travel boom; more flights, competitive fares ahead
After a four-year hiatus, the Swiss Cross is back at Changi Airport.
The arrival on Monday of Swiss International Air Lines Flight LX178 from Zurich marked the end of Singapore Airlines' monopoly on the route, and more competitive fares for travellers.
It is good news for the 4,000-strong Swiss community in Singapore - the largest in an Asian city - said Mr Thomas Kupfer, Swiss Ambassador to Singapore.
He said: "Apart from an increase in seat capacity, Swiss' new service will also provide passengers with more options when travelling between Switzerland and Singapore."
