Even 17 years after the airline was transformed into SWISS International Airlines, the name “Crossair” is still familiar to many. It was such a great airline offering flights from Switzerland to all over Europe using SAAB 2000 and SAAB 340 as well as MD-83s or Avro RJs.
Crossair’s trademark rights were then transferred to SWISS, which then became a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa.
In 2009, however, the rights were acquired. To ensure that the brand remains protected, a Cessna 172 with the Crossair logo has been flying in Switzerland since 2011.
This aircraft is the subject of today’s request following the announcement of the rework of the C172.
The mentioned aircraft flies for the Motorfluggruppe Zürich, a flight school and an aviation club based at Zurich Airport. It’s a little piece of Swiss aviation history and it would be a great addition to the C172 fleet.
