Here is a mail I received the 5th of december, answering an enquiry I made the day before.
Dear Mr. CXXXXX
We thank you for your interest and your request/ application referring a pilot position within SWISS.
At the moment we don’t accept applications from direct or ready entries. As soon as the situation changes it will be published on our homepage: http://www.swiss.com/web/DE/career/career_entry/cockpit/Pages/entry_options.aspx
Please note: It is a must to have very good German and English language skills when applying as cockpit crew member within SWISS.
And also, that you cannot apply for the ab initio program, when you get a CPL license. The ab initio program is for people without flight experience and no CPL license. http://www.swiss.com/web/DE/career/career_entry/cockpit/Pages/pilot_ab_initio.aspx
