SWISS taps into New York commuters

SWISS taps into New York commuters

NYC subway commuters now have a chance to slow down the pace inside a shuttle train completely decorated with the majestic scenery of Switzerland including one subway car where commuters become passengers on Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) while shuttling between the east and west sides of Manhattan.

SWISS, who has sponsored the project with Switzerland Tourism, is showcasing its fuel efficient Airbus aircraft on a shuttle car designed with a relaxing atmosphere that SWISS provides in three classes of service from JFK International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport.

From the NYC area, SWISS offers four daily flights, (three from JFK International Airport and one from Newark Liberty International Airport), offering First, Business and Economy classes of service on each flight.

Reaching SWISS flights from Newark and JFK is also convenient from Penn Station in New York City where travelers can take the NYC Shuttle to the west side to reach Penn, then hop on the AirTrain to either airport.

Swiss have also launched an online competition at which invites guests enter between now and may 12, with a view to winning two airline economy tickets on SWISS.
