Chair Airlines is ready to take off into winter 2019/20. Tickets for flights to Kosovo and North Macedonia – including for the first time from Basel and Geneva to Pristina – now can be booked individually at www.chair.ch. Chair Airlines is complementing its winter schedule with flights to several destinations in northern Africa and the Middle East.
Glattbrugg, Switzerland, October 17, 2019 – Chair Airlines is ready for the 2019/20 winter season which is slowly coming around the corner: Between early November 2019 and late April 2020 the airline will operate flights to Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, several times a day from Zurich as well as non-stop flights from Basel (daily) and Geneva (Saturdays). For the first time, tickets for these flights can be booked at www.chair.ch. Another innovation is the sale of individual seats for flights between Zurich and Skopje (daily) or Ohrid (Sundays) in North Macedonia. “We are delighted to offer individual online booking of our flights to the Balkans and to have added Basel and Geneva to our portfolio of airports. We aim to offer a broad range of choices to passengers who want to spend their year-end holidays with family and friends,” says Urs A. Pelizzoni, CCO and Member of the Board of Directors of Chair Airlines.
For vacationers in search of sun during the grey winter months, Chair Airlines is focusing on the Egyptian cities of Hurghada, Marsa Alam, and Sharm el-Sheikh. These sun-kissed destinations in the Land of the Pharaohs can be reached non-stop from Zurich by passengers who want to enjoy relaxed beach holidays or activities in and under water including kite surfing, diving and snorkeling. Also, the Chair Airlines winter flight schedule includes Beirut, the bustling capital of Lebanon – perfect for a city trip or to start a discovery tour of the country’s cultural sites.
“We deliberately reduced the number of holiday flights we will be offering in cooperation with tour operators in winter 2019/20 – winter seasons typically do not lend themselves to experiments,” adds Pelizzoni. In turn, Chair Airlines has increased the number of flights it will be offering in the summer of 2020 significantly; the schedule already is available at www.chair.ch.
All winter 2019/20 and summer 2020 flights can be booked online at www.chair.ch, by calling the Service Center at +41 44 577 61 00, or by contacting travel agencies and select tour operators. One-way tickets start at CHF 79. Depending on tariffs, passengers can check in up to 20 kg of luggage free of charge. Ticket prices include soft drinks and snacks or, depending on the duration of the flight, a warm meal, as well as all taxes and fees.
