Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has newly equipped the cabins of its five Airbus A340 aircraft with the First, Business and Economy Class seats already featured on its Boeing 777s, together with a new inflight entertainment system that includes internet connectivity. Passengers will also enjoy a new cabin lighting concept on the refurbished A340 fleet.
“With the completion of our Airbus A340 cabin refurbishment program, we are further underlining our quality commitment, and now offer all our customers the same premium air travel experience, including inflight internet connectivity on all our long-haul flights,” said SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour.
SWISS operates its Airbus A340s on services between Zurich and Boston, Johannesburg and Shanghai. The A340 will also be deployed on SWISS’s new Zurich-Osaka (Japan) route where flights commence on March 1, 2020.
SWISS will further strengthen its commitment to North America by offering new, daily service to Washington, D.C. from Zurich beginning March 29, 2020. The route will be operated with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft seating 236 passengers. The new flight will bring service on the Zurich-Washington, D.C. route to 14 weekly frequencies provided by SWISS and its joint-venture partner United Airlines.
