Swiss International Air Lines has launched its new daily non-stop service between Singapore and Zurich, Switzerland.
The new service, LX 179 will take off from Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2 today, operated by an Airbus A340-300 aircraft.
This air link further enhances ties between the two strong business and financial centres in Europe and Southeast Asia.
It also provides convenient flight connections for travellers to Europe and beyond.
SWISS, the national airline of Switzerland, now connects Singapore with Zurich seven times a week.
The new non-stop service, which was launched today, is operated with Airbus A340-300 equipment seating 219 passengers in a three-class cabin configuration.
SWISS’s A340s are also fitted with the company’s state-of-the-art Business Class cabin, whose adjustable-air-cushion seat which converts into a two-metre-long lie-flat bed offers customers optimum comfort aloft.
“With our daily non-stop services between Singapore and Switzerland we want to meet the growing travel needs of both business and leisure travellers between our countries,” emphasised SWISS chief executive Harry Hohmeister on the occasion of the first flight.
“Our double-night service perfectly complements our Star Alliance partners’ offer and we are delighted to now bring the best of service, products and hospitality from Switzerland to Singapore.”
SWISS’s flight LX 179 departs from Singapore at 23:10 and arrives in Zurich at 06:10 the following day.
In Zurich, passengers can conveniently and promptly connect to up to 35 European destinations as well as to attractive destinations at the East Coast of the United States of America like New York or Miami.
The eastbound LX 178 service leaves Zurich at 22:45 and lands in Singapore at 17:15 the next day.
