Built by the Swiss Federal Construction Works (Eidgonoessische Konstruktionswerkstatte) the EKW C.35 biplane was built alongside the C.36 monoplane as a replacement for the Fokker C.Ve in the Swiss Air Force. First flying in 1936, some 40 were ordered, with the first entering service in 1937 and all deliveries completed by the end of 1938. A further order for eight was made and these were built from spares between 1941 and 1942. Withdrawn from front line use in 1943 the last was retired in 1954.

These aircraft were in service in the early years of World War II, were involved along with other aircraft of the Swiss Air Force in aerial incidents that were with the Luftwaffe during 1940, in border areas, due to the German advance on France
