On March 28, the Flying Food Group team at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) started offering its catering services on the new Swiss International Air Lines flight to Zurich, Switzerland (ZRH).

“We are delighted to see our long-time standing customer entrusting us with their new route opening,” the company said in its April 3 press release.

Swiss International Air Lines will offer a new nonstop service between ZRH and IAD. Flights are set to operate daily throughout the summer and five times per week in the winter.

Passengers on this new route will travel aboard an A330-300 aircraft which features First Class, Business Class and Economy Class cabins. The aircraft can carry a maximum of 236 passengers. The capacity is divided into 183 Economy seats, 45 Business seats and eight First Class seats. Following the introduction of the A330-300, SWISS was the first airline in the world to offer First Class tickets on all long-haul flights.

According to Flying Food Group, the A330-300 is cost-efficient and profitable, providing significantly lower total operating costs per seat than its nearest competitor. This aircraft has the versatility to cover all route segments – from short-haul trips to long-range distances of up to 6,350nm.

Flying Food Group is also currently servicing SWISS at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Miami International Airport (MIA), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
