Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) and the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) have expanded their joint SWISS Air Rail network to now include Geneva Airport.
SWISS passengers travelling via Lausanne, Fribourg or Bern railway station can now find SWISS Air Rail connections to and from both Zurich Airport and Geneva Airport. The new Geneva Airport SWISS Air Rail connections can be booked and used with immediate effect.
SWISS and the SBB are also integrating their technical systems, and now provide SWISS Air Rail tickets with an SBB QR code, to help improve both boarding pass checks.
SWISS and SBB have been steadily expanding their joint product and service portfolio since they established their strategic partnership in October 2019.
“This further expansion of our joint SWISS Air Rail network makes it even more attractive for SWISS air travellers arriving in Switzerland to continue their journey by train – comfortably, congestion-free and more seamlessly, too,” said Véronique Stephan, the SBB’s Head of Passenger Markets.
SWISS is also improving access to the SBB’s Swiss Travel Pass on its online channels such as the swiss.com website and the SWISS app. These channels also offer SWISS travellers a wide range of additional travel-related products and services including airport lounge access and baggage collection options.
The Swiss Travel Pass offers visitors to Switzerland a single travel pass valid for three, four, six, eight or 15 days with which they can explore the entire country by train, bus and boat. Regular Swiss public transport tickets should also be available via SWISS sales channels by the beginning of 2024.
Miles & More members will earn both award and status miles on their SWISS Air Rail tickets, with the number of miles earned based on their connecting flight and class of travel. SWISS First and SWISS Business customers also travel in first class on their SBB train connection.
