SWISS Choice

Introduction of new individualized service offers

fly

At the Annual Results Media Conference on 13 March 2014 SWISS announced the expansion of its range of products and services for the months to come. The first of these new fee-based services will enable customers to reserve a preferred seat up to 11 months before their departure date or order an inflight surprise in the form of champagne or chocolate cake for someone special. As hitherto, it will still be possible to reserve a seat at no charge from 23 hours to 1 hour before departure. During the reminder of 2014 a variety of other attractive SWISS Choice offers will be introduced.

SWISS and the “SRV Fachgruppe Flug” have engaged in a constructive exchange of ideas regarding the processes to be expected. It is in the interest of both SWISS and the “SRV Fachgruppe Flug” to keep the booking process for travel agencies as simple as possible.

The new advance seat reservation (ASR) requires various technical updates on the part of SWISS and the GDS systems. SWISS and its internal systems provider are working closely together with the GDS systems to connect all systems with regard to EMD-A and the corresponding advance seat reservation service. Until ASR is introduced, the goal is to have the GDS ready to offer advance seat booking. During this transition period, travel agencies will be able to book these services for their customers through SWISS.

Detailed information about product and booking will be communicated via the SWISS Agent Newsletter at a later date.
