Opening Statement From Our President

‘’ As most of you will now know, I will be taking over from Beau Giles as President of SWISS International VA (SIVA). It will be a challenge to fill the shoes of two past presidents who I can’t thank enough for the effort and passion they put into getting SIVA to where it is today.

I started off as the Digital Brand Director at SIVA, and this was a role that I throughly enjoyed fulfilling.

Fast forward to today and with the unfortunate resignation of our brilliant former presidents, I now speak to you as SIVA’s new president. I know all the past resignations inadvertently had an impact on SIVA during the last few months, and I truly do understand the struggle staff and pilots alike felt so I would like to so say a special thank you to everyone for their support. SIVA wouldn’t be the same without same without the dedication of our staff and of course all those who choose to fly the SWISS flag along side us.

I promise do my upmost to take SIVA above and beyond what is expected of a VA and hopefully restore the passion and make the SIVA community proud. ’’

- Amir Hussein, President of SWISS International VA

It’s been a while since anything has been posted on this Account and we’d say it’s about time we announce something! After a few months of back and forth we’re glad to announce that we are finally getting @Turkish_Airlines_VA Codeshares! With this codeshare we have added the A33F for those of whom are craving some cargo ops and many long haul single isle flights! Or perhaps widebodies are more your style, we got that too! Enjoy the new codeshares and have a continued good weekend. Happy Birthday Switzerland 🇨🇭

@SwissVirtual Hello, I applied a few days ago, like 3-5 but i still haven’t heard back. Any news?

Why does every VA have to have 15+ age requirements? 😭 I wish I could join, awesome thread, guys. :)

So since I fly for UVAL, using the codeshare agreements, I can fly for swiss right?

It is no way for me to join right? I am not 15 yet.

Unless you have a codeshare right?

If you are in another VA that has codeshares with SIVA, you can fly those codeshare routes. But you have to be 15 to join SIVA and file piraps for them.

Va’s have specific codeshare routes?

I thought you could do all routes?

Yes, they have specific codeshare routes not all routes for the most part. BAVA for example have many codeshares with American, but not many with Latam. Still latam operates more than those routes shares with BAVA and the same for American.


VAs usually have the codeshares the airline uses in real life. So that mean that BA and American are bigger partners than BA and latam.


Keep in mind that it is up to the VA to choose if they want realistic partnerships or not, so it might not be that all codeshares are completely like real life for all VAs :) (most VAs though operate like the real airline)
