Airline Swiss to upgrade fleet and unveil new Zurich airport lounges

Swiss, the airline of Switzerland, is making substantial changes to the quality of its business class product, with the aim of offering more comfort and privacy on European flights.

Airbus A320s and A321s of Swiss’s European fleet are currently undergoing an extensive cabin refurbishment which will include ergonomic new seats and a new cabin and seating design.

Swiss will also guarantee to keep the neighbouring seat vacant for all its business class guests in Europe from the end of March onwards, to offer greater privacy on board. 

As a further new service, inbound business class travellers will be provided with their own exclusive bus transfer from the aircraft to the terminal from the end of March onwards. The new facility will be offered at Europe’s major airports for flights that arrive at non-terminal stands.

For business long-haul, new lounges will be opened for Swiss business customers at Zurich Airport’s Dock E in the fourth quarter of this year. The new lounges will extend over some 2,000sqm, and will feature a terrace with views of the airport and its runways and the Alps beyond. The business class lounge will seat up to 200.
