SWISS launches new “SWISS Holidays” travel portal

Zurich Airport, 1 September 2016

SWISS has established a new travel portal which enables customers to compile their own individual vacation packages including flights and hotels. The new portal features a wide range of travel products at highly attractive prices for appealing tourist destinations all over the world.

SWISS now gives customers the opportunity to book not only flights but entire vacation packages online. The airline’s new travel portal offers scheduled flights from Switzerland on SWISS and further partner carriers, together with a selection of over 10,000 hotels and 140 vacation destinations, all of which can be freely combined. SWISS is working closely with tour operator AG to provide the new facility.

SWISS Holidays is geared to a broad target audience. From those seeking a brief city break to holidaymakers desperate for a relaxing beach vacation, everyone will find a wide range of suitable holiday offers. Each package will be compiled using the lowest rates available for the flights and the hotel selected. By booking packages of this kind, travellers also enjoy the services of the tour operator along with all the security that is offered by an inclusive-tour arrangement. And with many destinations, all the transfers and a tour guide are included, too.

Travellers booking a SWISS Holidays arrangement will enjoy all the usual services and facilities aboard their scheduled SWISS flights. And members of the Miles & More frequent flyer programme will earn award miles on the full package price, together with status miles on all the corresponding flights.

To mark the new portal’s launch, SWISS Holidays is offering a special prize, too: an exclusive four-day city break to Barcelona with round-trip SWISS flights, accommodation at the five-star Hotel Melia Barcelona Sarriá and a culinary tapas tour.
