Edelweiss Air AG return to Tampa after a 2 year hiatus

On March 3, 2022, Tampa International Airport hosted a cocktail reception organized by the Swiss Consulate in Orlando together with the Swiss American Chamber of Commerce Florida Chapter to celebrate Edelweiss Air’s return of its direct service from Zurich.

Bernd Bauer, Edelweiss’ CEO, and Patrick Heymann, Edelweiss’ CCO, have been received among many others by a delegation from Tampa airport, representatives of Pasco, Pinella and Hillsborough county, Luc Burkhardt, Honorary Consul of Switzerland in Orlando with his spouse Bonnie and last but not least Peter Zimmerli, Consul General of Switzerland in Atlanta with his spouse Jun.

The return to Tampa International Airport (TPA) and the reestablishment of its nonstop service between Zurich and Tampa comes nearly two years after Edelweiss Air’s hiatus due to the pandemic. Edelweiss, a member of the SWISS Group under Lufthansa, will provide the service from Zurich twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays.
