The Swiss Federal Railways and the Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss are extending their cooperation, which has existed for some time, to the Munich-Zurich route. This is the first "Swiss Air Rail" route (formerly: airplane) to be included on an international level.

From July 2022, Swiss passengers will be able to use the Munich Central Station – Zurich Airport route for the first time as an international train and flight connection. The range of services available within the Confederation will also be expanded.

“Together with SBB, we are taking an important step forward with complementary travel options in the interest of our guests. Together we are focusing on a more intelligent linking of rail and air traffic wherever this makes sense. It is a milestone that we can now launch an international Swiss Air Rail connection with Munich for the first time,” says Swiss COO Tamur Goudarzi Pour.

It is planned that six pairs of SBB trains between Munich and Zurich (vice versa) will be assigned Swiss flight numbers every day. In addition, boarding and alighting is also possible in Bregenz, Austria. The train ticket is included in the plane ticket. As with all Air Rail routes, Swiss offers its passengers a connection guarantee in the event of a delay. First and Business Class passengers also travel in 1st class, and First and Business Class as well as HON and Senator Status customers have access to the Deutsche Bahn lounge at Munich Central Station. In addition, all passengers on the route to Munich Hbf receive an automatic seat reservation and benefit from free WiFi

“I am pleased that it is now even easier to combine plane and train on the Munich – Zurich Airport route. This means that SWISS customers can increasingly use the train for short and medium-distance routes to the Zurich hub. Thanks to fast, direct train connections, customers have optimal connections to their onward flight from Zurich Airport,” says SBB Passenger Traffic Manager Véronique Stephan.

The Air Rail offer in Switzerland is also being expanded further in cooperation with the SBB. New, selected intermediate stops on the existing air rail connections are planned for summer 2022 in order to enable even more passengers to seamlessly connect the train and the Swiss hub at Zurich Airport. On the route from/to Geneva, for example, boarding and alighting options will be introduced in Bern, Fribourg/Freiburg and Lausanne in combination with a Swiss flight ticket. From/to Lugano, passengers will now also be able to board and disembark in Bellinzona. In addition, the two transport companies plan to introduce an improved baggage pickup and delivery service.
