DIA adds new nonstop flight to Zurich
Denver International Airport and Swiss airline Edelweiss Air announced Wednesday a new series of seasonal nonstop flights between Zurich, the most populated city in Switzerland, and Denver.
Starting June 2018, Edelweiss will run two flights per week from both DIA and Zurich Airport. The Denver flights will depart at 10 p.m. on Mondays and 6:05 p.m. on Fridays, both arriving the next day. The nearly 10hour flight, flown on an Airbus A330-300, will seat 315 passengers.
The Denver-bound flights depart Zurich at 5:15 p.m. Mondays and 1:20 p.m. Fridays, arriving the same day.
The service runs from June 4, 2018, through Oct. 26, 2018, during its first season.
Edelweiss is owned by Swiss International Air Lines, a subsidiary of the German carrier Lufthansa.
Zurich is DIA’s 24th nonstop international location and its first nonstop to Switzerland. The airport has 16 flights across the Americas, six to European countries and one to Tokyo. Laura Jackson, vice president of air service development at DIA, said the airport hopes to offer nonstop flights to Seoul, South Korea, and Beijing, China, within the next three years.
