Swiss World Airways was a short-lived Swiss airline headquartered in Geneva and operating out of Geneva Airport. It was founded in 1997 with the aim of operating on routes abandoned by Swissair, but closed in 1998 for financial reasons.[1] An attempt to save it failed.[2]


Swiss World Airways only operated scheduled flights from Geneva to Newark Liberty International Airport with flights to Montreal and Miami announced as being planned.[3]
