History of Swiss International Air Lines

After Swissair, the former flag carrying airline of Switzerland, went bankrupt, Swiss International Air Lines was founded. This happened in 2002. Cossair, being owned by the same shareholders, was merged with the new version of Swissair and in 2005 commercial operations began for the airline. Agreements were reached after a few years of not being profitable and Swiss Intl. joined forces with Air France-KLM and Lufthansa.

The airline became profitable in 2006 and began to grow, adding new routes and being taken over completely by the German airline Lufthansa, making it a subsidiary airline. The airline also joined Star Alliance in 2006. Swiss Intl. is renewing its fleet, one by one. Their new aircrafts are more environmentally friendly and contribute to less noise pollution.
