Cheap SWISS International Airlines Flights (LX)


Swiss International Air Lines is closely linked with Switzerland in more than name only. Classic Swiss values such as quality, reliability and hospitality make flying with SWISS a distinctive travel experience.

Founded as Switzerland’s national airline in 2002 as the successor to Crossair, SWISS became a member of the Star Alliance network in 2006. Within this framework, SWISS remains committed to its mission of providing quality air services linking Switzerland with Europe and the world.

SWISS serves 90 destinations around the world from its Zurich hub and from Basel and Geneva international airports. It operates a fleet of technically advanced aircraft with which it carries 13.5 million passengers in 2008. Airbus A330s and A340s are used on intercontinental routes, with the Airbus A320 family and Avro RJ100 aircraft handling short-haul and regional flights. From spring 2009 onwards, nine brand new Airbus A330-300 with a new First and Business Class are gradually being phased-in, replacing the current fleet of A330-200s by 2011.

SWISS understands the needs of customers across the travel spectrum. For those travelling between continents, SWISS offers the luxury and exclusivity of SWISS First, an exceptionally high standard of comfort and calm in SWISS Business or the friendly service of SWISS Economy. On short flights within Europe, SWISS offers complete flexibility from full-service in SWISS Business to a more streamlined product in SWISS Economy. Whichever option is selected, passengers can count on enjoying the personal service on which the more than 7,300 SWISS employees pride themselves. From the moment they book their flight until they step off the aircraft, the focus is on their needs.

The effort involved in striving for quality really pays off when an airline is recognised by its passengers and the industry it is part of. SWISS has collected a number of awards in various categories since its inception, testimony to its commitment to making air travel a pleasurable experience for everyone who boards a SWISS aircraft.
