Last week, the Business Traveller Awards were announced in Germany for a variety of travel related categories. Among them, SWISS, Lufthansa and Austrian took 1st, 2nd & 3rd respectively in the category that awarded best ‘Business Airline for Business Travellers in Germany and Europe’. The win for SWISS was its 2nd consecutive for the category.
SWISS was also recognized by readers for ‘Best Airline For International Business Travellers‘ and was awarded a respectable 3rd place for the category.
Additionally, Lufthansa took home 1st place for “Best Website For Business Travellers“.
The Business Traveller Awards are awarded on an annual basis and are determined by reader balloting.
SWISS is running an attractive Business Class sale for travel originating in Zurich to a variety of destinations in Asia, The Middle East and even South America!
During the promotion, fares are at least 50% off of their regular rates and in some cases near 60% off (Zurich – Sao Paulo). The window for this sale is open until July 14. Departures must take place between July 1 and August 31 and return flights must take place by September 8. A Saturday or Sunday night stay is required as part of the terms/conditions.
Example fares (All fares in Swiss CHF):
Bangkok : 2499.
Hong Kong 2499.
Beijing – 1999.
Johannesburg – 3499.
Sao Paulo – 2499.
Shanghai – 2499.
Considering the wonderful Business Class product offered by SWISS, fares like this are a great value and do not come up often, at least to this level of discount. I assume these fares will be limited so take advantage of them as soon as possible!
There is also a bit of a sale to USA destinations with most fares ranging between 3200-3700CHF to most East Coast destinations and slightly higher to Chicago and the west coast. Though decent, these fares are obviously not as attractive as fares to Asia and the Middle East. Clicking on the link above, or banner below will take to the the home page for both fare sales.
