Mayor Gavin Newsom and a host of San Francisco and Swiss representatives met the new Swiss International Air Lines flight LX38, which is decorated with a colorful San Francisco ’60s-inspired mural complete with peace signs, musical notes and guitars.
The new SWISS service will operate six times per week, departing SFO at 7:25 p.m. and arriving in Zurich at 3:40 p.m. the following day. There is no service on Tuesdays, according to the mayor’s office.
“Congratulations to SWISS on its new premium non-stop service from Zurich,” Newsom said. “This new route will provide passengers with a superior travel option to Europe as well as further cement the strong ties between our two sister cities.”
