SWISS unveils new services for first class passengers at Zurich Airport


The new 650sqm lounge has been designed in the style of the existing SWISS First Lounge in the airport’s Terminal E, and offers lounge suites, a lounge club with inviting leather sofas, a business zone and a meeting room with a view of the apron area.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has introduced a new SWISS First Class Lounge in Zurich Airport’s Terminal A for its First Class travellers and HON Circle Members of the Lufthansa Group.

The new lounge, which is accessible via an escalator from the Terminal A departure concourse, enables guests to check-in simply and conveniently at the welcome desk, hand in their luggage, and pass through a dedicated security checkpoint.

The new SWISS First Lounge A is primarily intended for guests who wish to enjoy their time at the airport before their short-haul flight. Travellers to long-haul destinations will be taken directly by limousine from Lounge A to the SWISS First Lounge in Terminal E, which is the departure point for long-haul flights. Travellers departing in winter and flying to warmer countries can also deposit their coat free of charge in a lockable wardrobe facility.

The new 650sqm lounge has been designed in the style of the existing SWISS First Lounge in the airport’s Terminal E, and offers lounge suites, a lounge club with inviting leather sofas, a business zone and a meeting room with a view of the apron area. Further facilities include a relaxation room with two loungers, and a smokers’ lounge with its own outside section and a choice of fine whiskies.

The centrepiece of the new SWISS First Lounge A is its extensive barista bar, offering guests various specialty coffees and over 100 Swiss grappas and other fruit brandies. The new lounge also offers both an à la carte restaurant and a front cooking option.

SWISS will also be offering an exclusive new chauffeur service this summer to its First Class customers arriving in Terminal E, in Terminal B or at a remote aircraft stand. The service will collect the customer from the aircraft door and take them directly to the relevant passport or security control in Terminal A or B.
