SWISS to Discontinue Security Fee

2nd May 2003

The Iraq war imposed heightened security precautions on all airlines. These extra measures were reflected in the charging of a temporary Êsecurity fee.
With effect from 1 May 2003, SWISS is to discontinue the increased security fee prompted by the war in Iraq. The situation in the Middle East has now stabilised to such an extent that flights to the Middle and Far East are operating normally again. This means that aircraft no longer have to carry extra fuel in case of longer flights or possible re-routing to alternative airports. The costs for additional safety measures will decrease at most of the airports as well.
