Swiss ATC delays likely during multiple international events

With the World Economic Forum in Davos, the international peace conference on Syria in Montreux and the 2014 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie watch fair in Geneva, Switzerland will be in the global spotlight several times over this month. Skyguide expects the World Economic Forum alone to generate some 1,000 additional flights. And numerous further high-priority official flights are likely to be operated to bring the various delegations to the Montreux peace talks. Skyguide will be maintaining security zones for both events in collaboration with the Swiss Air Force and FOCA (Federal Office of Civil Aviation).
