SWISS has been voted ‘Europe’s Leading Airline – First Class’ and ‘Europe’s Leading Airline to Asia’ in the 2024 World Travel Awards. The annual distinctions are based on a global poll of international tourism specialists and airline customers.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) took first place in two categories in this year’s 31st edition of the World Travel Awards. Switzerland’s leading air carrier was named ‘Europe’s Leading Airline – First Class’, the third time it has earned this distinction for its impressive SWISS First product. SWISS was also voted ‘Europe’s Leading Airline to Asia’, the first time it has secured this honour, in the 2024 World Travel Awards.

“We are pleased and proud to have made such a positive impression on both our customers and the specialists from the tourism world in the 2024 World Travel Awards, and to have done so in not just one but two categories,” says SWISS Chief Commercial Officer Heike Birlenbach. “These honours are sure to encourage us to make even more enhancements to our quality air travel product, and to further cement and refine our position as Europe’s leading premium airline.”

Top comfort and attractive connections

SWISS First travellers are offered the finest of comfort from the moment they check in to the moment they arrive at their destination. After taking advantage of priority check-in, they can spend the time before boarding their flight in SWISS’s exclusive First Class Lounges. Once aboard, they can relax in their comfortable First Class seat and enjoy exquisite gourmet meals; and those arriving in Zurich will be personally met at and collected from the aircraft door.

SWISS is the only airline to offer First Class on all its long-haul flights. This includes all SWISS services between its Zurich hub and Asia, which, in the 2024 summer schedules, will extend to a total of 50 flights a week to Bangkok (Thailand), Delhi (India), Hong Kong (China), Mumbai (India), Seoul (South Korea), Shanghai (China), Singapore and Tokyo (Japan).
