Important note: During the promotional period your customers have a choice between the restrictive Business Class Saver fare (NN: non-rebookable, non-refundable) and the fully flexible Business Class fare (FF: rebookable and refundable). Please be sure to take this into account when you use the pricing functions of your GDS.

Booking tip:For customers who require flexibility, the fully flexible Business Class fare (BUZ) continues to be the appropriate choice. For that reason, when pricing it is essential to select the ‘BUZ’ Fare Family (FF fare). In standard pricing where no Fare Family/Brand ID is selected, it can happen that, depending on the GDS used, instead of the fully flexible Business Class fare (BUZ) the promotional fare (BXX) or a combination of both will be selected – in particular, of course, when a Best Buy/Best Price function is used.




Fully flexible Business Class fare – enjoy the usual flexibility

The fully flexible Business Class fare is now available at even more attractive rates for the following destinations:

Brindisi from CHF 429
Bari from CHF 429
Malta from CHF 429

Bombardier C Series 100 operations to start in mid-July

SWISS will commence service of its first Bombardier C Series aircraft – a CS100 –, which will be deployed on short and medium-haul routes, on 15 July. In doing so, SWISS will be the first airline in the world to operate the new Bombardier C Series. The first commercial flight will take passengers to Paris Charles de Gaulle, followed by flights to Manchester, Prague and Budapest. In August, the C Series network will be expanded to include Warsaw and Brussels, followed by the European metropoles Nice, Stuttgart, Hanover, Milan, Florence and Bucharest in September.
Bombardier’s newly-developed C Series, which is SWISS’s new short to medium-haul aircraft, sets new benchmarks in inflight comfort, operating economics and environmental terms, including a 50% noise reduction which will particularly benefit local airport residents
