Swiss Flies Boeing 777-300ER to Bangkok

Swiss International Air Lines has launched daily Boeing 777-300ER flights between Zurich and Bangkok, replacing the Airbus A340-300 which previously operated the route. It not only increases flight capacity by more than 55 percent, but also offers an even more comfortable flying experience for business passengers.

“Again, it is great news for the group in Thailand with Swiss bringing in the flagship Boeing B777-300ER after we successfully introduced Eurowings into the Thai market late last year,” says Dirk Grossmann, general manager passenger sales Thailand and the Mekong Region for Lufthansa Group. “This has proven that we have a strong and steady growth and demand in this region, and Bangkok continues to be the important Asian hub for the Lufthansa Group.”

The new Swiss Boeing 777-300ER features a three-class configuration, with eight open suites in First Class, 62 flat-bed seats in Business Class, and 270 standard seats in Economy. The Swiss First Class seat is transformable into the occupant’s own private suite that includes a 32-inch screen. Swiss First Class passengers also get electrically-adjustable window blinds and their own personal wardrobe. In Business Class, the seat cushion’s firmness can be individually regulated, while Economy Class passengers can make use of a self-service kiosk that offers a range of drinks and snacks. www.swiss.com
