Just a couple of days ago the Lufthansa Group airlines published their winter flight schedule. There seems to be reasonable demand to the Middle East, as Lufthansa and SWISS will increase their flight activity between Frankfurt/Zurich and Dubai. Furthermore, there will be a new flight to Muscat.
Lufthansa to offer up to 5 flights per week
Lufthansa will increase its capacity from four flights per week between Frankfurt and Dubai, to five flights per week this month (October 2020).
In addition, SWISS is set to restart its services between Zurich and Dubai, with three flights per week beginning on 29th of October 2020.
The new SWISS DXB–ZRH service will depart on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, while ZRH–DXB flights will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
DXB– ZRH flights will depart at 01:55 hrs and arrive at 06:10 hrs, and ZRH–DXB flights depart at 21:50 hrs and arrive at 07:00 hrs (+1).
New direct flight between Zurich and Muscat
Meanwhile, SWISS and Edelweiss have jointly decided to rearrange services from Zurich to Muscat. SWISS previously operated a triangular flight to Muscat from Zurich via Dubai. This will be replaced by a non-stop Zurich to Muscat flight, flown by Edelweiss, which will run from November 2020.
Flights from Zurich to Muscat are planned for Friday and Sunday, with return flights on Saturday and Monday:
WK046/LX8046 ZRH-MCT 21:30 – 07:00+1
WK047/LX8047 MCT-ZRH 09:50 – 14:10
