Swiss - Swiss air carrier. The registered office is located in Basel.
The airline was founded as a result of the bankruptcy of the Swiss carrier Swissair in 2002 year. The new airline was formally launched in March 31 2002 years. The first few years, the company, a lot of debt inherited from his predecessor, suffered huge losses. At that time, according to Director of the Swiss, the company had three ways of further development, which in the end would lead to the production of the much-anticipated income. Firstly, the company can begin to develop their own, their own way. Secondly, you can make significant reductions in the state of the air carrier, thereby reducing costs. And third, you can enter a part of a larger airline with a stable income.
The company's management has stopped at the third option and started negotiations with three major carriers - French-Dutch, British and German. As a result of these negotiations was received a positive response from the German kompaniiLufthans, but the Swiss for some reason abandoned the merger. However, in the end, Swiss German company agreed Lufthans and became a member of the Star alliance alliance.
