Lufthansa Group subsidiary Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will expand its Geneva-based short-haul fleet by adding three A220s, for a total of 10 aircraft—comprising  seven A220-300s and three -100s—by June 2019.

The fleet expansion became necessary with the addition of six previously announced summer destinations and the introduction of up to nine daily SWISS-operated flights from Geneva to Lufthansa’s main hubs of Frankfurt and Munich.

From March 31 until Oct. 26, SWISS will operate 5X-daily Geneva-Munich services.

Flights to and from Frankfurt will be partly operated by Lufthansa, for a total of 4X-daily services with SWISS aircraft and 4X-daily with Lufthansa planes.
