Summer vacation is just around the corner and Nicole Diermeier, member of the Management Board of Switzerland Tourism, and Markus Binkert, Chief Commercial Officer of SWISS, are here just in time to present their best tips for outings and vacations in Switzerland and abroad in 2017.
Nicole Diermeier: Needless to say, more than five come to mind. Just off the top of my head, I’d say:
As a bonus, I’d also like to mention the “Grand Tour of Switzerland”: This 1,600-kilometer road trip takes you on a journey through Switzerland, replete with a multitude of other highlights and quite a few insiders’ tips. Of course the Grand Tour also passes through Ticino and a long list of cities and towns of all sizes.
Markus Binkert: Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) flies from Zurich and Geneva to more than 100 destinations in 43 countries around the globe. For anybody currently interested in making travel plans, however, I highly recommend five new destinations that SWISS has added to its flight program for summer 2017.
Incidentally, SWISS is deploying its new short- and medium-haul aircraft, the Bombardier C Series, on these new routes. SWISS is the world’s first airline to use this new aircraft, which was built from the ground up and sets new standards in terms of operating efficiency and environmental friendliness. Plus innovations to the cabin design have achieved significant improvements in passenger comfort. Large, closely spaced windows, for instance, allow extra daylight into the cabin which lends the interior of the aircraft an entirely different sense of space. Just lean up against the window and enjoy the view.
