Swiss European Air Lines Ltd. or Swiss European Air Lines AG is a subsidiary of Swiss International Air Lines. Swiss International Air Lines, also known as SWISS, is the successor of Swissair, following that company's grounding in 2001. Like its parent, Swiss European is part of the Star Alliance. It has its legal headquarters [1] in Basel and a subsidiary on the grounds of Zurich Airport and the town of Kloten.[2][3] SWISS and Swiss European are both owned by the Lufthansa Group.

The average age of the Swiss European Air Lines fleet is 16 years (as of December 2013).

[6]

On 11 March 2009, the Lufthansa Group board announced that, in 2014, it plans to gradually replace the current Avro RJ100 fleet flown by Swiss European with aircraft of the Bombardier CSeries. The replacement of the current 20 aircraft is planned to take two years, while an additional 10 aircraft will be delivered thereafter to allow for capacity expansion. The new aircraft will allow Swiss to continue serving restricted destinations such as London City Airport or Peretola Airport. With the delays the Bombardier C-Series experiences this date has been postponed to 2015

The Lufthansa Group is a launch customer for this aircraft type, and had previous signed a letter of intent for up to 60 aircraft.[8][9]
