Terms and conditions

Rebooking and refund conditions for Upgrade to Business Class bookings are based on the conditions of the paid Economy fare, for instance the conditions for changing or cancelling a booking and the baggage allowance. In case rebooking is permitted, the Economy fare must be rebooked in the same or a higher booking class and the Upgrade into Business Class amount paid for the new flight must be equal or higher - if higher the fare difference must be collected. Change fees for the Economy fare will be applied according to fare conditions. For cancellations, the refund conditions of the paid Economy fare are applied to the entire ticket.

If a flight is missed due to a delayed connecting flight or if a flight is cancelled, SWISS will rebook the passenger on the next SWISS flight. If no seat in Business Class is available on the next available SWISS flight, SWISS will rebook the passenger in Economy Class and a refund of the Upgrade will be given. If the rebooking is on a flight operated by another airline, onward transport is only permitted in Economy Class, in which case the amount of the Upgrade to Business Class would be refunded.

These offers are not valid on codeshare flights. The Upgrade to Business Class is not guaranteed until you receive a confirmation.
