SkyWork Airlines will offer a connection between London City Airport, on the one hand, and the Swiss industrial center of Basel and the Swiss capital of Bern, on the other. Service will start July 19, 2015, provided official authorizations and airport slots are granted on time.
SkyWork Airlines will cover the route between London and Basel-Bern with an early-morning flight Monday through Friday and an evening flight on Sunday. Passengers travelling to and from Bern will have a short stopover at EuroAirport Basel/Mulhouse. Starting August 31, 2015, SkyWork Airlines will operate flights on workdays at both ends of the day (morning and evening) as well as once a day on Saturday and on Sunday. The Bern-based carrier will use a Saab 2000 leased from Etihad Regional (Darwin) to service this route.
Swiss dropped its connection between Basel and London City last weekend. The Bern-based regional carrier SkyWork Airlines will now continue the tradition of a Swiss carrier connecting London City with Basel.
SkyWork Airlines currently flies directly from London Southend to Bern. The times in this timetable will be adjusted later to meet requirements.
