SWISS First Class

SWISS First Class is simply called SWISS First, it is a fine example of Swiss style and design. In 2009, a new First Class cabin was launched with the introduction of new Airbus A330-300 aircraft on selected routes with Airbus A340-300 aircraft to keep the old product.

The fully flat seats have sleek lines and quality finishes on both the new and older products. SWISS places great emphasis on the entire flight experience from check-in, lounges and in-flight services all created to the highest standards.

A SWISS First rule exists where only 8 seats are in the First Class cabin on both Airbus A330-300 and Airbus A340-300 aircraft. This keeps it feeling like an exclusive space which can be clearly defined as a First Class cabin.

The configuration on all aircraft is 1-2-1, ideal for passengers travelling alone or if with a companion or business colleague great to have two seats together where you are not totally isolated from each other like on some new products in the market place utilising full suites.

Roger Federer has commented on the new SWISS First product:

When I want to recover from the rigours of a long tournament, the new SWISS First seat will offer me everything I need to rest and relax undisturbed, I’m looking forward to my first flight in the new SWISS First cabin

– Roger Federer, Tennis Champion
