Advance Seat Reservation (ASR) in Amadeus

We are pleased to inform you that our Advance Seat Reservation (ASR) service is now fully bookable in the Amadeus system.

We are still working closely with our internal systems provider and the GDSs to connect all our systems with regard to EMD-A and the corresponding Advance Seat Reservation service. Other GDSs will follow step-by-step. During this transitional period, we are also offering our travel agency partners alternative ASR booking and rebooking options via the SWISS Service Center.

SWISS Timetable news

SWISS to withdraw Zurich-Kiev service

SWISS will be withdrawing its present Zurich-Kiev service with effect from 1 October. The service is being terminated for economic reasons, as business on the route has failed to develop in line with expectations. The service was introduced in the 2013/14 winter schedules.

SWISS customers who have already booked to travel on the route on or after 1 October can either cancel their reservation or rebook onto a partner airline free of charge. The Lufthansa Group offers several connections a day between Switzerland and Ukraine, such as via Vienna on Austrian Airlines or via Lufthansa’s Munich or Frankfurt hubs.
