“Bilanz” magazine

SWISS named best airline in Europe


Bilanz magazine, one of Switzerland's leading business publications, has named SWISS "best European air carrier" in an in-depth study of global air transport. The magazine acknowledges our important role as the ‘Airline of Switzerland’ and credits us in particular for offering "more Swissness than ever.” The Bilanz report specifically notes that “As well as the popular inflight meals from the kitchens of the country’s best-known chefs, passengers can now enjoy music and movies of Swiss origin, too". Further recognition is given for SWISS's pioneering use of social media. The author points out that SWISS was among "the first airlines to provide round-the-clock customer service via Facebook and Twitter.”

At SWISS we are naturally delighted to have our efforts lauded in this influential publication, which spurs us on to remain the airline of choice of discerning travellers.
