SWISS to bring air show to the 2017 Lauberhorn Races

SWISS to bring air show to the 2017 Lauberhorn Races

SWISS will again be serving as Official Airline for this year’s 87th International Lauberhorn Races, which will be held in Wengen in the Bernese Oberland from 13 to 15 January. And, once again, The Airline of Switzerland will be providing one of the off-piste highlights: both the Friday (13 January) and the Saturday (14 January) programmes will include a flypast over the venue by a SWISS aircraft escorted by the Patrouille Suisse, the Swiss Air Force display team. This year it’s the Bombardier CS100, SWISS’s advanced new short- and medium-haul twinjet, that will be taking the stage. And there’ll be a SWISS premiere on the ground, too, where the SWISS Pilot Combo will be helping to make the party mood.

Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will again be serving as Official Airline to this year’s International Lauberhorn Races, as part of its ongoing commitment to sports. The highlight in this year’s involvement will again be provided by a flypast over the course by a SWISS aircraft accompanied by the F5-E Tigers of the Patrouille Suisse, the air display team of the Swiss Air Force. For this year’s flypasts SWISS will be bringing one of its Bombardier CS100s, the state-of-the-art new short- and medium-haul twinjets which it put into service last year. SWISS is the world’s first operator of this totally new aircraft, which is setting new benchmarks with its inflight comfort, its operating economics and its environmental credentials.

Weather permitting, the flypasts will be conducted between the combination downhill and slalom on the Friday (13 January) and before the downhill on the Saturday (14 January), and should provide a genuine spectacle against the breathtaking backdrop of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. A taster of what is in store is offered by this impressive video of a previous Lauberhorn flypast on the SWISS YouTube page.

SWISS will be offering another highlight on the ground at this year’s Lauberhorn event. On both the Friday and the Saturday, the SWISS Pilot Combo – a band composed exclusively of current SWISS cockpit personnel – will be performing in the World Cup Village in Wengen from 16:00 onwards. And as a further attraction, visitors viewing the Saturday race from the Girmschbiel can look forward to a small surprise with SWISS flight vouchers to win.
