SWISS provides aid for victims of Asian tsunami

4 January 2005

SWISS is participating in the collective effort organised by Swiss Solidarity for the benefit of the victims of the Asian tsunami. From tomorrow, January 5, through until Sunday, January 9, SWISS will donate CHF 10 for every booking received via www.swiss.com. In addition, 10 per cent of the January revenue from duty-free sales on board SWISS flights will go to Swiss Solidarity.

The undersea quake and subsequent sea surge in Asia have prompted an unprecedented global relief effort. SWISS expresses its solidarity with the victims and actively supports the relief work by donating funds to Swiss Solidarity.

From January 5 to 9 SWISS will donate CHF 10 to the relief fund for every flight booked over www.swiss.com. Until the end of January, 10 per cent of all revenue from duty-free sales on board SWISS flights will go to Swiss Solidarity.

SWISS will also make cargo space available free of charge in the short term for organisations such as the Red Cross and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
