In July, 1.16 million passengers were welcomed aboard by SWISS<.>. The seat-load factor in the month under review was 76.1%, not only exceeding the figure for the previous month but also the Business Plan.

In Europe, 886,661 passengers were carried in July – the seat-load factor attained 63.5%. Traffic to destinations in south-east Europe and the Scandinavian countries produced highly satisfactory results.

On the intercontinental route network SWISS had a load factor of 82.6% – in all, 271,995 passengers were transported. The flights to North America – SWISS offers direct connections to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Washington and Montreal – also had very good payloads. Destinations in the Far East also proved to be very popular.

The results achieved lie above the Business Plan of December 2001, which foresaw 921,000 passengers for the month of July.
