Following the bankruptcy of Swissair in 2001, Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) was formed from the expansion of Swissair subsidiary Crossair. Now the national airline of Switzerland, Swiss is a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group with hubs in Zurich and Geneva. Swiss WorldCargo is the airfreight division of SWISS, established in 2002. A member of the Star Alliance, the carrier operates a domestic and regional network within Switzerland and Europe as well as international services to Asia, North America and Africa. Swiss previously owned a subsidiary unit, Swiss Global Air Lines, which later merged into the parent in Apr-2018. Swiss International Airlines is also the launch customer for the Bombardier CS100 aircraft, rebranded as Airbus A220-100.
