Fare Concept Europe

Fares Concept Europe

Even more affordable: transfer flights in Europe

From 11 July 2016 many European transfer flights will enjoy reduced minimum stays on Economy and Business Class flights with Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and SWISS. Your customers will also be able to make the most of more attractive prices on many routes – the Economy Flex fare in particular can be booked more affordably to many destinations from 11 July 2016.

Economy Classic fare: even more flexible

In future your customers will enjoy even more flexibility on the Economy Classic fare, as from 11 July 2016 it will also be possible to change route when rebooking in booking classes Q/H/U/M/B/Y. This will apply to European flights with Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and SWISS. Until now a subsequent change of the booked O&D was only possible with a Flex fare.

Please note: if a customer on a Classic fare in a lower booking class wishes to change route, a surcharge to a higher booking class (Q/H/U/M/B/Y) on the original route must be applied first, and the route change implemented afterwards.

Bombardier C Series

Worldwide novelty for SWISS

CS100

More comfortable, quieter and friendlier on the environment are distinguishing elements of the new C Series by Bombardier, which will embark on its first commercial SWISS flight to Paris Charles De Gaulle on 15 July. Large windows allow more natural light into the cabin and the new seat design provides more space with the same pitch. New technologies and modern materials reduce fuel consumption, lower pollutants and make the aircraft seem quieter – for both passengers and the environment. Look forward to SWISS’s brand-new aircraft.

More information about the new C Series and destinations served can be found at: www.swiss.com/cseries

Edelweiss

Cancún, Costa Rica and San Diego - Three new destinations to suit all holiday tastes

Edelweiss - New destinations

Edelweiss is set to reintroduce flight services to Cancún in its 2017 flight timetable – and thus in time for the spring holidays. Flights to this Mexican beach
resort on the Yucatán peninsula will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays. The Yucatán region offers spectacular nature and some of the Caribbean’s most
beautiful white beaches. As well as a relaxing beach holiday, impressive ruins of ancient Mayan cities provide plenty of opportunities to explore Mexico’s
fascinating history.

Edelweiss’s non-stop flight services to Cancún will begin on 16th April 2017 and will be operated year round.

Costa Rica - Where diversity reigns

Beginning in spring 2017, Edelweiss will also commence new flight services to Costa Rica. This year-round holiday destination in Central America has so much to
offer, including rainforest tours, volcano hikes, surfing along the Pacific coast and boat tours on the waterways of the Caribbean coast. With an impressive variety
of landscapes, flora and fauna, Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world.

Costa Rica boasts an impressive diversity of nature and is home to over a million animal species.

Starting on 9th May 2017, Edelweiss will fly non-stop to Costa Rica on Tuesdays and Fridays.

San Diego – Beach holiday and city trip in one

The sun shines 300 days a year in San Diego. Besides beautiful beaches, a worldfamous zoo and a string of amusement parks, this popular holiday destination
features a pleasant climate and is particularly suitable for holidays with children. California’s second-largest city is also an excellent starting point for onward travel
to the north or to Mexico.

Starting on 9th June 2017, Edelweiss will operate non-stop flights to this southern Californian metropolis on Mondays and Fridays.

Flights from and to Cancún, Costa Rica and San Diego will be operated with a newly refurbished Airbus A340 which has 314 seats. 27 seats in Business Class,
76 in Economy Max (with 15 cm more legroom) and 211 seats in Economy Class ensure travel comfort throughout the flight. Add delicious food and Swiss service
to the mix and Edelweiss passengers can enjoy their holiday from the moment they step on board.
