We will also be increasing the size of our Premium Economy Class, which has proved very popular. And in both these respects, we are further clearly positioning SWISS as Europe’s leading premium airline.”

Fuel efficiency is another feather in its cap, consuming only 2.5 liters per passenger for every 100 kilometers.
