The Osaka service will kick off on March 1, operating five times weekly on a 223-seat A340-300 aircraft. Flights will leave Zurich at 1 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, arriving at Osaka’s Kansai International airport at 8:45 a.m. the following day, while the return leg will depart the Japanese city at 11 a.m., landing back into Zurich at 4 p.m.

On March 23, the daily Washington D.C. service will launch on a 236-seat A330-300 aircraft. For this route, flights will depart Zurich at 1:45 p.m., landing in Washington at 5 p.m., with the return flight leaving the US city at 8:35 p.m. and landing back into Zurich at 10:40 a.m. the following day.

These new routes will eventually be operated by the Switzerland flag carrier’s newly delivered B777-300ERs.

All five aircraft in the fleet are now equipped with a brand new cabin, as well as inflight entertainment system with internet connectivity. The cabins also come with the first, business, and economy-class seats featured on its Boeing 777s.
