Through the cooperation of Lufthansa and SWISS you enjoy even more advantages as a passenger. Both airlines lay great importance on quality and service.


Perfectly coordinated flight offers

You benefit from a combined flight offer. You, therefore, have a larger variety of flights than before and can book the chosen flight comfortably on with a Lufthansa flight number - no matter whether it is a Lufthansa or a SWISS flight.

You can fly for example daily with SWISS from Zurich via São Paulo to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile or fly non-stop from Zurich to New York (JFK).

Together with SWISS we also offer you the short distance flights in a higher frequency: You can for example fly at seven in the morning from Hanover to Zurich and either fly back in the afternoon directly after your meeting or shopping spree or fly back late in the evening.

Moreover the expanded cooperation between SWISS and United Airlines offers you additional flights to the USA. Also the European offer of SWISS was extended further. New frequencies to Budapest and Athens have been added to the schedule.

All new connections you can naturally find in our Online timetable.


Easy Check-in as well as shorter walks and transfer times

In order to ensure that checking-in is even more convenient for passengers, the services at German and Swiss airports will be harmonized. From the 2006 summer timetable, Lufthansa will be responsible for ground services for SWISS flights at all German airports. All flights operated by both airlines will then be handled in the same terminal and at the same counters.

Restructuring is also in progress outside Europe, in Narita, Miami and Bangkok for example, meaning that through the course of this year check-in counters will be moved closer together. This means no more changing of terminals and connection times will be improved.


A strong connection: SWISS and the Star Alliance

From the beginning of 2006 SWISS is a member of the Star Alliance. Thus the Star Alliance is now serving a total of 842 destinations in 152 countries, with more than 15,000 flights a day. A selection of flights which will benefit Lufthansa passengers, SWISS travellers and passengers of the other Star Alliance members.
