Travel to Switzerland on the new SWISS 777er
SWISS are entering a new era in its long-haul aircraft fleet with the arrival of the first of its nine new Boeing 777-300ERs next January. The new twinjets will seat 340 passengers in SWISS configuration. They will also offer a new state-of-the-art cabin in all three classes, which will include Wi-Fi. The ‘Triple Sevens’ will be deployed on routes to and from Asia, South America and the US West Coast from summer 2016 onwards.
A further element in its ‘Next-Generation Airline of Switzerland’ strategy, SWISS will begin the renewal of its long-haul aircraft fleet in 2016. A total of nine new Boeing 777-300ERs (‘extended range’) will be gradually assimilated into the fleet.
The Boeing 777-300ER will offer 340 seats in SWISS configuration; eight in First Class, 62 in Business Class and 270 in Economy.
The cabin interior will be totally redesigned to provide comfort and aesthetics, meeting the most discerning of demands in all three seating classes.
The SWISS First Class seat will be transformable into the occupant’s own private suite that includes a 32-inch screen, the largest in the industry, as well as having electric window blinds and their own wardrobe.
SWISS Business Class passengers will enjoy a new seating arrangement to offer optimum privacy and freedom of movement, while the seat cushion’s firmness can be individually regulated.
All the seats in the SWISS Business Class will have the option to be quickly and easily converted into a lie-flat bed that is over two metres long.
With new seat-cushion technology and further innovations that include a large personal touchscreen, SWISS Economy customers can also look forward to a new air travel experience. Outside the regular cabin service, all Economy customers will be able to make use of a self-service kiosk offering a wide range of drinks and snacks.
All nine Boeing 777-300ERs will also feature wireless internet via a broadband connection, enabling passengers to surf or send emails on their laptop, tablet or smartphone device.
From summer 2016 onwards, the new aircrafts will be deployed primarily on services to Hong Kong, Bangkok and Los Angeles. San Francisco, São Paulo and Tel Aviv will also receive a Boeing 777 service several times a week.
