Passengers can avail of the summer fares on Swiss Economy from now until 19 May 2011 with outbound travel valid until 30 September and completion by 30 November.  Prices for Swiss Business are valid year long.

This summer, SWISS also offers its passengers the expanded range of services from Geneva and Basel in its 2011 summer schedules. For Geneva, SWISS increased its daily services to Athens, and now offers a total of ten destinations in the Mediterranean region under codeshare agreements with sister airline Edelweiss Air. From Basel, Rome and Copenhagen were added as well as raised frequencies on its existing Hamburg and Barcelona routes. Nice will also be served four times a week from Basel in the summer season; and SWISS will be offering up to three new daily flights from Basel to London (Heathrow) and daily service on the Basel-Manchester route in collaboration with its partner bmi. For Zurich, intercontinental flights were boosted with raised capacity to Shanghai, San Francisco and East and West Africa and on certain Southern European routes in the summer schedules.

SWISS passengers can also look forward to more as by middle of this year, the entire SWISS long-haul fleet will be equipped with the new Business Class cabin. SWISS is the only airline to offer a First, Business and Economy Class product on all its long-haul flights. 
Martin Massueger Director, Head of Sales Middle East, Africa, Pakistan and Iran for Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS), said:  “We are pleased with the developments at SWISS which only benefits our passengers. It is a pleasure to offer our loyal SWISS customers attractive fares as they enjoy our high quality products on-board and services both on ground and in the skies. With our high values of quality, hospitality and service excellence, passengers are in for a true SWISS experience.”

SWISS boasts of the state-of-the-art A330-300, deployed daily from Muscat to Zurich, with its attractive new cabin in all three seating classes. Centrepiece of this aircraft is the innovative on-board seating technology featuring a pneumatic air cushion whose firmness or softness can be set to individual tastes. And a further highlight for passengers’ enjoyment is the new inflight entertainment system in all three cabin classes which offers an extensive selection of the latest movies and music.

The Airbus A330-300 offers more legroom in Swiss Economy, a new seat which transforms into a two-metre lie flat bed in Swiss Business and a special ‘suite above the clouds’ in Swiss First.

Until the beginning of June, SWISS’s First and Business Class guests on intercontinental services from Switzerland, selected inbound flights and longer European routes will get to enjoy authentic creations from Canton Zug in Central Switzerland. The dishes are the work of 16 GaultMillau-point chef Stefan Meier, who has been heading the kitchen of the “Rathauskeller” in Zug’s old town for the past 28 years.

Travelling via SWISS is even more convenient for passengers through its Zurich hub.  Zurich Airport has earned numerous awards and distinctions; and with its sophisticated infrastructure and short distances between gates, changing flights in Zurich is a swift and enjoyable experience. 

SWISS operates daily flights from Muscat to Zurich connecting passengers to 72 destinations (48 in Europe and 24 beyond) in 39 countries in its 2011 summer schedules.
