Swiss Air was the former national airline company of Switzerland, which was started in 1931 by merging two airline companies Ad Astra Aero and Balair; however, closed its operations in 2002, up to which time it operated its flights from the hubs of Zurich Airport, Geneva Cointrin, EuroAirport Basel-Mulouse-Freiburg, with a fleet size of 76 working on 157 destinations.

Swissair operated very effectively taking its revenues very high and the airline community started calling it as ‘The Flying bank’ to go with the reputation of Swiss banking in the world’s eye. In 1997 the Swissair group was renamed SAirGroup carrying four subdivisions, namely SAirlines, SAirServices, SAirLogistics and SAirRelations, while the new organization was going on a ‘Hunter straegy’ expanding through acquisition of smaller companies, unfortunately it had to face an economic turndown following September 11 attacks in the US, and with the Swiss Federal Government’s assistance, it was kicking and alive till 2002.
