SWISS To Resume 20% Of Its Original Services Capacity In June



In the next few days and weeks, the entry requirements of various European countries will be gradually reopened. This has led to increased demand for air travel. Therefore, SWISS plans to significantly expand its services on the June schedule in accordance with respective countries entry requirements.

“We plan to restore approximately 15% to 20% of our original services in June, and we are very pleased to be able to provide Switzerland with more connections to the world.”

SWISS plans to operate about 140 weekly flights from Zurich to 30 destinations in Europe, and about 40 weekly flights from Geneva to 14 destinations in Europe. The airline will still provide long-haul flights to Newark, USA three times a week, and more intercontinental destinations will be added in June. In addition, Swiss International Air Lines and its Swiss WorldCargo division will continue to operate its cargo-only flights to destinations around the world.

Changes and additions to the June schedule will be announced soon in all reservation systems. According to the needs of customers, the expansion of flight schedules is proceeding gradually.

Starting Monday, May 4, 2020, all SWISS passengers will be required to bring their own face masks onboard all flights. The airline also recommends using masks at the airport before or after the flight if sufficient social distance cannot be observed. Despite the adjustments to the program, social distancing is not always possible, and this measure provides everyone with another layer of protection against SARS CoV2 transmission.

The recommendation will initially apply until August 31, 2020.

The current requirement for the second seat in Economy Class to remain vacant will no longer apply because the nose and mouth masks provide adequate protection. The probability of being infected with coronavirus while travelling by air is still very low: since the outbreak of the pandemic, there have been no known cases of infection on Swiss Airlines flights. All SWISS aircraft are equipped with high-performance air filters to ensure the same air quality as the operating room and to ensure vertical air circulation rather than diffusion in the cabin.

Swiss International Air Lines stated that it maintains close contact with relevant authorities to ensure the best protection for passengers and crew.

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport



SAS A350 Livery Rear View

The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.

More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China. All students departing from China who purchase SAS flight tickets in economy class only need to show a valid student ID at the airport check-in counter to check in one extra piece of luggage. This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
