Even more Business Class enhancements

Business Lounge Dock E

SWISS continues to invest at all levels in its Business Class product. The SWISS Business cabin on European services will soon feature greater seating comfort and more privacy through a guaranteed free adjacent seat, while an exclusive bus transfer will be available to Business Class travellers at selected airports. And on its long-haul routes SWISS is expanding its Business Class culinary offering alongside its convenient “quick meal” option. New lounges will also be opened in Zurich towards the end of the year. SWISS Business is available for as little as CHF 169 (one-way) or CHF 299 (round-trip) on European routes.

SWISS, the Airline of Switzerland, is investing continuously in its fleet, its products and its services under its “Next-Generation Airline of Switzerland” strategy. And in its latest action here, the airline will be substantially further enhancing the quality of its Business Class product.

More comfort and privacy on European flights

The Airbus A320s and A321s of SWISS’s European fleet are currently undergoing an extensive cabin refurbishment. The programme, which began last month, extends to ergonomic new seats and a new cabin and seating design that tangibly raise inflight comfort levels. SWISS will also guarantee to keep the neighbouring seat vacant for all its Business Class guests in Europe from the end of March onwards, to offer greater privacy on board. SWISS Business is available to destinations within Europe for as little as CHF 169 one-way or CHF 299 round-trip.

“Our customers can enjoy all the appeal and advantages of Business Class travel at a very attractive price,” confirms Markus Binkert, SWISS’s Chief Commercial Officer. As a further new service, inbound Business Class travellers will be provided with their own exclusive bus transfer from the aircraft to the terminal from the end of March onwards. The new facility will be offered at Europe’s major airports for flights which arrive at non-terminal stands.

SWISS Business long-haul: new lounges and a broader culinary range

New lounges will be opened for Senator-status travellers and SWISS Business customers at Zurich Airport’s Dock E in the fourth quarter of this year. The spacious new lounges will extend over some 2,000 square metres, and will feature a terrace with views of the airport and its runways and the Alps beyond. Both lounges will offer a range of freshly-prepared meals, and the Senator Lounge will also boast a staffed bar. The Senator Lounge will accommodate up to 175 travellers and the Business Class Lounge up to 200. Both lounges will be located conveniently close to the departure gates for SWISS’s long-haul flights.

On board, SWISS is expanding the range of its culinary offering, providing a wider selection of starters and adding a separate cheese course. The full meal service is also accompanied by a “quick meal” option, which enables the customer to decide for themselves whether to enjoy their meal to the full or use the time to rest – an option that is particularly welcome on night flights.
