To celebrate its new non-stop route between Zurich and San Francisco, Swiss International Air Lines has come up with a colourful “flower power” San Francisco livery on one of its Airbus A340-313X (HB-JMJ).
The final design was chosen from a selection of three by the readers of the 20 Minuten daily paper. Around 30000 readers voted, and their choice will remain on the aircraft for more than a year.
Swiss also launched a special website for this event. At http://www.singfrancisco.com you can find wallpaper, ringtone and screensaver downloads as well as further information and a singing contest.
Customers aboard the â€œSan Franciscoâ€ aircraft can expect a further highlight inside. HB-JMJ is the first of SWISSâ€™s A340s to be equipped with the new SWISS Business cabin, with its unique seating arrangement and the generous space it provides and seats that feature an innovative air cushion whose firmness can be swiftly and flexibly adjusted to individual wishes, to name just two of the new cabinâ€™s many benefits. Under current plans, a second A340 should have the new SWISS Business cabin installed by mid-July, enabling the new Business Class product to be offered to travellers on all Zurich-San Francisco flights.
