SWISS and SBB expand air rail service

SWISS and SBB are expanding their joint Air Rail product from Geneva Airport. The Western Swiss towns of Vevey, Montreux, Sion, Sierre, Visp and Brig will all now be linked into the SWISS route network.

This will allow travel on to various resorts in Canton Valais such as Crans-Montana, Verbier, Zermatt and Saas-Fee. The new SWISS Air Rail options are bookable as of June 11.

Travellers need only check-in once and will then be issued with their boarding pass, which includes their rail ticket. SWISS Air Rail customers can also use their rail ticket one day after their SWISS arrival, or one day before their SWISS departure, which gives them greater flexibility in their travel planning.

SWISS customers on all SWISS Air Rail routes are also offered a connection guarantee in the event of a delay.

Miles & More members will earn miles, with the mileage and points amounts awarded determined by their connecting flight and class of air travel.

SWISS First and SWISS Business guests also travel first class by train.
