Swiss International Air Lines (Swiss) services from the Middle East offer some of the earliest arrival times into continental Europe, with 14 daily connections within Switzerland – to Geneva, Basel and Lugano – or onward to more than 70 global destinations.
First Class passengers can enjoy the state-of-the-art seats, which convert into the biggest beds in the sky, and also include a flexible, spacious table for work or dining. Communication facilities comprise laptop power connection and the newly introduced SMS messaging – the first in the airline industry. In Business Class, the cabins offer the highest standards of travel comfort with seats arranged in three pairs on either side of the aisle in the newer planes. As part of its service for Arab travellers, Swiss offers a variety of tailormade services including Halal meals with Arabic menu cards, Arabic newspapers and a special Arabic music channel.
Under its new winter timetable, Swiss has regulated its departure schedule to and from Dubai, which will see the daily non-stop outbound flight from Zurich depart at 12:40 allowing for good connections from other European destinations, and arriving in Dubai at 21:40, while the non-stop return from Dubai to Zurich will depart at 02:30 and arrive in Zurich at 06:20 in the morning.
