SWISS on Tuesday announced new fare options for European air travel.
The options form part of a totally new fare concept for all the airline’s services within Europe that offers customers even greater choice and flexibility, an announcement by SWISS said.
The new concept features three Economy Class options alongside the Business Class fare, so travellers can choose the fare that meets their specific needs and pay only for the services they actually require.
All four fares include the flight, one piece of carry-on baggage, an inflight snack and drinks, a firm seat assignment when checking in within 23 hours of departure and Miles & More award and status miles.
Economy Classic: The Economy Classic fare entitles the customer to all the services they have previously enjoyed with a SWISS Economy ticket, such as one piece of registered baggage and a firm seat assignment.
Economy Flex: Economy Flex enables the holder to select their seat in advance in the “preferred” seating zone at the front of Economy Class, and also to rebook at no extra charge.
Business Class: In addition to its three Economy Class fares, SWISS continues to offer its Business Class fare, which entitles the traveller to all the customary premium services and amenities such as use of the airport lounges, a higher checked baggage allowance, seat reservation, a vacant adjacent seat and priority boarding.
According to SWISS, the airline is adopting its new fare concept for Europe in collaboration with Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, to offer customers greater consistency within the Lufthansa Group when they come to book their flights. Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines will be introducing their new European fare options later this summer.
