Swiss airline more popular than ever

3 January 2012

Swiss International Air Lines has carried a record number of passengers this year, surpassing the 15-million mark.

Swiss was created after the collapse of the national carrier Swissair ten years ago under a mountain of debts. After getting off to a rocky start, the fledgling airline was bought out by the Lufthansa group in 2005.

Under the wing of Lufthansa, Swiss has not only survived the financial crisis and boom in oil prices but has become one of the most commercially successful airlines.
