SWISS named best airline serving North and South America


For the third year in a row, German-language “Business Traveller” magazine has named SWISS the winner of its Business Traveller Award 2004 for the best airline serving North and South America. SWISS was also rated top in the category Cabin Comfort for flights within Germany or Europe.

In the traditional autumn survey, 3000 readers of Germany’s “Business Traveller“ magazine rated SWISS the best airline in the individual categories Ground Services, Cabin Crews and Cabin Comfort, as well as in the Overall category for flights to North and South America. The SWISS product also won the approval of the magazine’s readers in the Cabin Comfort category for flights within Germany/Europe.

The award ceremony took place yesterday at the Steigenberger Hotel Frankfurter Hof in Frankfurt. Rudi Schumacher, VP Sales & Marketing Europe, accepted the prize on behalf of SWISS: “We are proud to have again received this significant award in Germany, which is a very important market for us,” he said.

Each year readers of Business Traveller rate those airlines which they have travelled with as frequent flyers, with prizes awarded accordingly.
