The new Airbus A320neo and A321neo airplanes will replace older A320ceo family aircraft that are currently part of the airline’s fleet. Swiss expects to receive a total of 17 A320neo and eight A321neo jets until the end of 2024.
In addition to the new aforementioned Airbus jets, Swiss operates Airbus A220-100 and A220-300 jets. The carrier was the global launch customer of the Airbus A220, previously know as the Bombardier CSeries. Furthermore, the airline’s current widebody fleet consists of twelve Boeing 777-300ER, 14 Airbus A330-300 and five A340-300 aircraft. The latter A340 jets underwent a cabin refurbishment programme in 2019.
