In 2016, SWISS will start gradually renewing its long-haul fleet with the addition of nine Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The ER (extended range) version of the legendary triple seven can carry 340 passengers for distances of up to 10,700 kilometres – with considerable fuel savings and less CO2 emissions per seat.
SWISS First seats offer passengers a private, enclosed space with a sliding coat rack, electric blinds on three windows, and an armchair that can be easily converted into a comfortable bed. With a 32-inch monitor, the in-flight entertainment becomes a big-screen experience.
The innovative Business Class seat, available as a single or double, features different firmness settings and can be reclined into a fully horizontal position. The arrangement of the seats ensures maximum privacy and freedom of movement. The new side tables are easy to use, and the generous 16-inch monitors are operated via a remote control with built-in screen.
On board a SWISS aircraft for the first time: WiFi to enable all passengers with a suitable digital device to connect wirelessly to the internet. Whether for information, entertainment and communication, or to send a spontaneously taken photo: with this brand-new feature, even long-haul flights will be over in no time.
In Economy Class on the Boeing 777, SWISS is setting new standards by giving passengers a greater feeling of space as well as large touchscreens for intuitive access to a wide range of entertaining films, music and games. The long-haul flight is ready for take-off.
To keep hunger and thirst at bay on long-haul flights, Economy passengers on the new SWISS Boeing 777 can choose from a wide selection of drinks and delicious snacks in the self-service kiosk.
With the Boeing 777-300ER, SWISS is not only setting new standards in comfort but also in terms of capacity, range and environmental friendliness. The twin-engine 777-300ER, which can carry 340 passengers for distances of up to 10,700 kilometres, uses 20% less fuel per seat and therefore emits less CO2 than comparable aircraft.
