Are you looking for hassle free, smooth travel to San Diego from Switzerland? Then here’s your dream come true! Edelweiss Air has now become the newest Swiss carrier to offer efficient connections to San Diego International Airport. The airline has recently launched its first nonstop flights services between Zurich and San Diego.
Media reports said that the flight duration between San Diego and Zurich will be about 12 hours 5 minutes. In fact, San Diego and Zurich have a time difference of 9 hours. Edelweiss Air currently operates in collaboration with Swiss International Air Lines.
The new nonstop flights will depart from San Diego International Airport’s Terminal 2 twice weekly on Fridays and Mondays evenings and reach Zurich next afternoon.

The San Diego Airport Authority in a official statement said that the launch of new nonstop flights will offer great opportunity to residents of San Diego to visit various destinations in Europe via Zurich.
Meanwhile, Edelweiss Air has announced that it will be launching new direct flights between Zurich and Denver starting next summer.

Currently, about 50 people travel between Zurich and Denver daily on an average, while a total of about 30,000 people travel between the two destinations annually.
Apart from this, German carrier Condor Airlines, which had started operating new nonstop flights between Frankfurt and San Diego in early May this year, has now decided to stop services on the route after the summer season ends. The decision of the airline has come after Germany’s national carrier Lufthansa announced its plans to launch new flights on San Diego-Frankfurt route in 2018, with five times per week services.
