SWISS is currently holding an attractive First and Business Class fare sale for travel in April from their USA Gateways. Anytime these fares go on sale it creates a great opportunity to experience one of the best First Class and Business Class products that exist for flights between the USA and Europe. Normally fares for these premium cabins can be twice as much!
For FIRST CLASS (click for fare website), fares from New York’s JFK and Newark range from the mid to upper $5000 range for most popular European destinations such as Prague, Rome, Paris, Vienna, etc. The lowest fare is from NYC to Florence for only $5493.
From the West Coast, fares range between the upper $6000 / lower $7000 range with Florence again being the best deal for $6493 from San Francisco or Los Angeles.
For BUSINESS CLASS, fares range from the upper $2000 to lower $3000 range from East Coast gateways. From the West Coast, fares range between the mid $3000 to mid $4000 range.
Be mindful when booking because some of the flights are operated by United or Edelweiss (using SWISS Aircraft). To maximize the experience I would suggest you make sure you pick the SWISS operated options for your transatlantic segments.
Terms and conditions are sparse, but at a minimum you must depart between April 13 and 25, returning no later than May 1. The fare sale makes for a nice ‘Spring Break’ opportunity!
