Direct flights between India and Switzerland to restart from January 10
Swiss International Air Lines is reportedly expanding its range of scheduled flights and adding new destinations to its networks. This means that the airlines will be restoring its services to Delhi and Mumbai, which were earlier suspended due to the pandemic.
According to latest reports, Swiss International Air Lines will be welcoming passengers from India as early as January 10, 2022. Hence, direct flights to and from Switzerland will be operational as part of the air bubble agreement between the two countries.
You will be able to fly to Zurich from Mumbai on Wednesdays and Fridays, and on the other hand, you can fly from Zurich to Mumbai on Mondays and Wednesdays. The following months will see more flights available from Mumbai, and Delhi. This could mean that your Swiss holiday is soon going to become a reality, but that is subject to change, as per the situation, and restrictions in the future.
You are advised to check the eligibility conditions for travel before you book tickets. Also, do check the transit regulations for Switzerland during that time.
Fully vaccinated travellers can now travel to Switzerland, so if you have been vaccinated with Covishield, or Covaxin, then you are eligible to travel. However, all adult travellers need to submit a negative PCR test report, which should not be older than 72 hours before your entry into the country.
Switzerland used to have a rule where travellers needed to take a second PCR or rapid antigen test, four to seven days after arriving into Switzerland, but that too is not necessary now.
