Summer flight schedule 2023: Three new destinations on short- and medium-haul routes
65 short-haul destinations in 21 countries. Akureyri (Northern Iceland), Biarritz and Bari new in the programme. The wide range of services to Greece and the Canary Islands is further strengthened.
Edelweiss, the leading Swiss leisure airline, is adding three new destinations to its route network for the 2023 summer timetable: Akureyri (Northern Iceland), Biarritz and Bari. Akureyri is the ideal starting point for visiting the highlights of Iceland and can also be perfectly combined with flights to Keflavik. The airport in the north of the country is served every Friday. Biarritz is a surfers' and bathers' paradise on the Atlantic in the west of France and impresses with its fascinating architecture. Those wishing to visit the Basque country can ideally combine Biarritz with the existing destination Bilbao. Flights to Biarritz start in June and take place on Tuesdays and Fridays. Bari is the capital of Puglia and is considered the perfect starting point to explore and enjoy this exciting region. On a round trip, you can discover other highlights such as the Amalfi Coast. Bari will be served on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from April.
More destinations during the summer timetable
For the first time in the summer timetable, Boa Vista and Sal on the Cape Verde Islands will be served; the season will be extended beyond winter until the end of June. Amman and Aqaba in Jordan, which will be added to the flight schedule in February 2023, will also be served in the summer flight schedule. Edelweiss will offer a total of 65 destinations in 21 countries on short-haul routes in summer 2023. Compared to the 2019 summer flight schedule, 19 short-haul destinations have been added and three destinations have been dropped.
