SWISS have announced the arrival of the first of its nine new Boeing 777-300ERs are due next January. The new twin-jets will seat 340 passengers in SWISS configuration. They will also offer a new state-of-the-art cabin in all three classes, which will include Wi-Fi.

First Class:

  • 8 seats, transformable into private suites
  • 32-inch screen
  • Electric window blinds
  • Private wardrobe

Business Class: 

  • 62 seats offering optimum privacy
  • Seats can be converted to lie-flat beds over two metres in length

Economy:

  • 270 seats
  • Self-service snack and beverage kiosk

“Our new Boeing 777-300ERs will be setting new benchmarks in terms of our guests’ overall comfort and travel experience,” says SWISS CEO Harry Hohmeister. “On top of that, with their state-of-the-art engines, our new twin-jets will give us substantial savings in fuel consumption and there will be a reduction in carbon emissions emitted.”

The ‘Triple Sevens’ will be deployed on routes to and from Asia, South America and the US West Coast from summer 2016 onwards.

A further element in its ‘Next-Generation Airline of Switzerland’ strategy, SWISS will begin the renewal of its long-haul aircraft fleet in 2016. A total of nine new Boeing 777-300ERs (‘extended range’) will be gradually assimilated into the fleet.

As a result, SWISS will be responsible for creating a total of 360 new cabin crew jobs within the next years.

The first six SWISS Airbus A340s to be withdrawn with the arrival of the new Boeing 777-300ERs will be returned to their lessors. Three further A340s will be replaced by new Boeing 777-300ERs between 2017 and 2018. These aircraft will be transferred to SWISS’s sister carrier, Edelweiss.
