SWISS will soon be touching down in Canada’s largest city and the U.S. capital when it launches nonstop flights between Toronto (YYZ) and Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Zurich (ZRH) next year.

The Swiss flag carrier is eager to offer more travel opportunities than ever as travel continues to rebound after the pandemic.

“The demand for air travel continues to steadily rise, and the loadings on our flights are now higher than they have ever been before,” said Tamur Goudarzi Pour, Chief Commercial Officer at SWISS.

Here are the details of SWISS’ new routes to North America.

Fly SWISS From Toronto and Washington, D.C. Next Year

In an update to the airline’s summer 2024 schedule, SWISS has detailed nonstop, daily services, between its hub in Zurich and the important North American cities of Toronto and Washington, D.C.

The U.S. capital will see flights first, with daily service beginning on March 28, 2024. The flights will operate daily with the following schedule:

  • Depart Zurich (ZRH) 1 p.m. — Arrive Washington, D.C. (IAD) 4:20 p.m.
  • Depart Washington, D.C. (IAD) 8:45 p.m. — Arrive Zurich (ZRH) 10:50 a.m. (+1)

And less than 2 months later, SWISS’ first-ever nonstop service between Zurich and Toronto will be inaugurated on May 10, 2024. Flights will operate daily according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Zurich (ZRH) 9:55 a.m. — Arrive Toronto (YYZ) 1 p.m.
  • Depart Toronto (YYZ) 4:35 p.m. — Arrive Zurich (ZRH) 6:30 a.m. (+1)

While both routes will be new for SWISS, the city pairs are already served by Star Alliance partners Air Canada and United Airlines, who operate flights to Zurich from Toronto and Washington, D.C., respectively.

SWISS will deploy its Airbus A330-300 aircraft to both Toronto and Washington D.C. These wide-body jets feature 8 seats in first class, 45 lie-flat business class seats, and 183 economy seats in a mostly 2-4-2 configuration.

Bottom Line:

SWISS’ new routes to Toronto and Washington, D.C., will bring the total number of North American destinations it serves to 9. Here’s our full guide on SWISS’ routes to the U.S.

Final Thoughts

SWISS announcing flights to Toronto and Washington, D.C. is great news for travelers, especially those who are partial to the Star Alliance. Not only will there be more ways to get to Switzerland, but passengers can take advantage of SWISS’ global network from its hub in Zurich to reach many destinations further afield with just 1 stop.
