On Friday, Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) announced the opening of a new 500 square meter Alpine Lounge at their Zurich Airport hub.
The new SWISS Alpine Lounge can accommodate 100 travelers and is located in Terminal A. Access to the lounge is available to Miles & More Senators, Star Alliance Gold Members and Business Class Passengers on SWISS and other Lufthansa Group airlines. The lounge has an “alpine flair,” blending the rustic charm of a mountain hut with comfortable and contemporary quality Swiss materials. Many elements of the Alpine Lounge are handmade by Swiss crafts folk, such as the bespoke light-wood elements and furniture, alpine-style carpets and custom cushion covers. High windows offer unobstructed views of the active apron area and long communal wood tables reinforce the “hut-like” ambiance and experience.
The Alpine Lounge offers a modern food and beverage experience centered around a rustic oven, where seasonal dishes are tailored to the tastes of each guest. Swiss wine and spirits are featured, and an ecofriendly dispensing system has been incorporated in the design. The lounge is open Monday through Friday, 5:30AM to 6:30PM.
