Restart!: SWISS resumes Graz - Zurich flights after break necessitated by Omicron

Twice-weekly direct flights to the major Swiss financial centre once again.

Feldkirchen/Graz, 28.03.2022. With the start of the summer flight schedule, travellers can once again also fly from Graz to Zurich, and thus to another major hub in the heart of Europe. Initially there will be flights twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, or in certain periods on Thursdays.

Zurich itself is worth a city break at any time. The old town, crowned by the Grossmünster church, offers many spots of historic interest, as well as fine shops, cafes and restaurants (the culinary highlights extend far beyond chocolate and cheese!).
