Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has unveiled at Zurich Airport its first aircraft to be equipped with the new Premium Economy class. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER with HB-JNH registration, will fly between Zurich and Miami in early March.

 After Miami, the SWISS Premium Economy aircraft will fly to two other destinations. The first will be San Francisco, on the West Coast of the USA, from mid-April. The second is in São Paulo, Brazil, from the end of April. Premium Economy will be available on all SWISS Boeing 777-300ER routes from the end of May.

In the introductory phase for the new travel class, customers will be offered paid upgrades to SWISS Premium Economy if it is available on their flight, either at check-in or at the boarding gate.

A new chair developed for more privacy and comfort

The new SWISS Premium Economy class will offer 24 state-of-the-art seats from the ZIM manufacturer. Comfortable upholstered seats have a sleek design that allows them to be easily tilted without any inconvenience to the rear passenger. SWISS is the first airline in the Lufthansa group to offer its customers this new ZIM Premium Economy seat. 

A durable facility kit and other benefits in the air and on the ground

For added comfort during the flight, SWISS Premium Economy passengers are offered a free facilities kit. The kit, which is provided by Skysupply, innovatively uses kraft paper and pulp in its contents to minimize the use of plastics. They also benefit from quality noise-canceling headphones, which will further enhance their audio entertainment experience. A 15,6-inch screen will be available on the seat.

The culinary offer on board the SWISS has been specially modified to suit the new travel class. SWISS Premium Economy guests are offered a welcome refreshment and a range of hot meals.
