Immigration regulations for Canada

Electronic Travel Authorization required as of 15 March

Electronic Travel Authorization

Canada's entry rules are changing, starting March 15, 2016. Citizens from visa-free countries will need to obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before flying to or transiting through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens.

Most visitors flying to or transiting through Canada will need either a valid visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). In order to fly to or transit through Canada without a visa, the following requirements must be met:

- The traveller must be a national of a country that is visa-exempt
- The traveller must carry proper travel documents and identification
for himself and any accompanying children
- The traveller must have a valid Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

Travellers will need an eTA before they can board their flights to Canada. Travellers are encouraged to apply for an eTA before booking their flights. It costs CAD 7 to apply. An eTA is valid for up to five years and allows repeated entries into Canada, provided your passport does not expire during this period.

SWISS receives its first Boeing 777-300ER

First Boeing 777-300ER

The first of the nine Boeing 777-300ERs which SWISS has ordered arrived at Zurich Airport on Friday January 29 at 09:14 following its delivery flight. The aircraft, which bears the registration HB-JNA, was welcomed with the loud applause of a large crowd of aviation fans and other keen spectators. The youngest – and biggest – member of the SWISS fleet was flown directly to Zurich from Boeing’s Everett Factory in the state of Washington in the USA. On board the flight, appropriately numbered LX 7771, were a delegation of the SWISS Management Board along with media representatives and further guests.

Official hangar presentation
In the afternoon, SWISS invited its top customers, politicians, representatives of the authorities, journalists and business partners to a first viewing of the new long-haul twinjet. In SWISS configuration, the Boeing 777-300ER offers 340 seats: eight in First Class, 62 in Business Class and 270 in Economy Class. The totally newly-designed cabin interior of the new SWISS fleet flagship offers top comfort and visual appeal in all three classes.
Boeing 777 passengers will also enjoy wireless internet connection in the air, the first time this has been offered on SWISS flights. The new “SWISS Connect” internet option offers a choice of three data packages costing between CHF 9 and CHF 39 to meet customers’ varying internet needs. SWISS First travellers will be offered a 50MB package on each flight, free of charge. As a further part of its new on-board internet facility, SWISS will also be offering an inflight phoning option (including SMS text messages and data transmission) using roaming technology for a trial one-year period.

Deployment on intercontinental routes
SWISS’s new Boeing 777-300ERs will gradually enter revenue service from the start of the 2016 summer schedules. They will largely be deployed on services to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Los Angeles, San Francisco, São Paulo and Tel Aviv.
