SWISS has announced that over the next 2 years, it will roll out upgrades and enhancements to the long haul fleet, focusing on their A330 and A340 aircraft.

WiFi!

Beginning in December, SWISS will begin to retrofit their 14 Airbus A330 aircraft with Wifi connectivity.   Obviously this will not happen overnight, but SWISS anticipates that all of their A330s will have the retrofit complete by the end of 2017.    Math suggests that approximately one aircraft per month will be taken out of circulation for a few days to complete the work.  WiFi is currently available only on SWISS 777 aircraft.

The A340….

SWISS has also stated that their A340s will receive the same First Class cabin as the Airbus A330.  The big advantage of the newer F product is the increased size of the television screen and an enhanced IFE system.     The fact that the seats will be brand new will also go a long way to refresh the cabins and give them a brand new look and feel.   WiFi is also planned during this upgrade.   SWISS expects that it will take through 2018 to complete this retrofit on their 10 A340 aircraft.
