You dine on a Michelin chef-created meal accompanied by a robust merlot from Switzerland’s Ticino region, you catch the latest award-winning film on your state-of-the-art, 16-inch touch-screen TV. After a restful sleep in your comfy, 79-inch lie-flat seat, you land in Zurich and head to the SWISS Arrival Lounge to enjoy a breakfast buffet.  

This is just part of the experience when flying SWISS Business —one of the most luxurious ways to travel to Europe and beyond. From check-in to landing, you can expect to travel in extreme comfort and to be looked after by some of the most attentive service in the air.

Here are a few of the comforts you can expect when you fly SWISS Business.

Personal Service

You’ll find great service in every class of SWISS, but it’s even more personal in SWISS Business. Hospitality schools teach students that the best service is discreet and anticipatory, but that’s a skill that comes naturally to the intuitive flight crew on SWISS. You can rest easy knowing the crew embody the Swiss art of Anstand—common decency. You’re not just treated this way because of your VIP status, but because kindness and consideration are the foundations of communication in Switzerland.

Throughout your flight on SWISS, the entire crew—from the check-in desk clerks to the SWISS Business lounge attendants to the empathetic pilots (who update you about weather, turbulence, and connecting flight information)—will put you at ease. SWISS’s unique training emphasizes safety culture, teamwork, and customer orientation, meaning that the passengers’ needs are prioritized every step of the way.

Delicious Food and Drinks

SWISS goes to great lengths to bring authentic Swiss cuisine on board so you can experience local specialties even before you land. Thanks to a unique program—the SWISS Taste of Switzerland—meals in SWISS Business are designed by a rotating roster of handpicked Swiss chefs, many of whom have earned Michelin stars. Dishes feature ornate creations like tomato-crusted chicken breast stuffed with olives and spinach served atop polenta galette. They come paired with wines sourced from Switzerland’s 26 cantons, like stony white Chasselas wines and Rhine Valley Blauburgunders, as well as creamy Swiss cheeses like Gruyère. And all passengers are treated to legendary Swiss chocolate at the end of the flight.

Comfortable, Private Seats

The SWISS Business seat configuration allows for flexible options. You can choose maximum privacy in single seats where you can work without disturbances, or recline in your 79-inch, adjustable lie-flat seat and enjoy the extensive entertainment system and invigorating massage function. Paired seats offer the same features and comfort, but allow you to engage, dine, and communicate with a loved one, colleague, or co-worker.

Amenity-Filled Lounges

Passengers in SWISS Business have access to a stellar array of lounges. Incoming passengers can access the SWISS Arrival Lounge, with 20 showers and a full breakfast buffet. For those departing, SWISS Business and Senator Lounges offer comfortable leather armchairs, as well as private areas to catch up on work or relax while awaiting your connecting flight.

Privileges for Skiers

Dreaming of morning freshies on corduroy Swiss piste? SWISS is the airline for skiers. For starters, your ski and snowboard equipment travel for free aboard SWISS. Even better, the airline has partnered with an on-the-ground crew, so your gear will be transferred from your departure airport straight to your hotel via train or bus…without your ever having to touch it.
