SWISS named “Best Airline for Europe” again

16 January 2009

Once again – for the third year in succession – Swiss International Air Lines has been voted “Best Airline for Europe” by the readers of Germany’s reputed Business Traveller magazine. This year’s overall title was secured through number-one rankings in the constituent categories of “Inflight Service”, “Cabin Crew”, “Ground Services and Lounges”, “Cabin Comfort” and “Seat Pitch”. SWISS also earned an excellent second place in the poll for “Best Direct and Connecting Flights to North and South America”.

Sarah Klatt-Walsh, Head of Inflight and Malte Bischoff, Head of Sales for Central & Eastern Europe, accepted the distinctions on SWISS’s behalf at today’s official awards ceremony in Frankfurt, Germany. “These honours are a compliment to everyone at our company,” Klatt-Walsh said. “At SWISS we believe that the travel experience begins long before takeoff. That’s why our constant quality drive is focused throughout the service chain. And our values of Swiss hospitality, quality in every detail and personal care are all geared to ensuring that when they travel with SWISS, our customers feel like they’re at home.”
