The new SWISS Alpine Lounge is available to Miles & More Senators and Star Alliance Gold Members, along with Business Class travellers on SWISS and other Lufthansa Group airlines.

The approximately 5,300-square-feet SWISS Alpine Lounge occupies the former location of the First Class Lounge in the airport’s Terminal A, and can accommodate up to 100 travellers.

About the lounge

Zurich’s new SWISS Alpine Lounge blends all the charm of a rustic, yet contemporary, mountain chalet with the comforts and the style features of the familiar SWISS lounges. A special highlight are the light-wood elements and the bespoke furniture, much of it handmade by Swiss craft artisans. 

The quality alpine-style carpets and cushion covers are also hand-crafted and sourced from local Swiss manufacturers. Large communal wooden tables underscore the chalet-like ambience, while the high windows offer fabulous views of the apron area and its flight activities.

SWISS has taken a new direction with the lounge’s food concept as well. The centerpiece of the new SWISS Alpine Lounge is a rustic oven in which seasonal dishes are prepared.

Additionally, guests are offered a range of ingredients to tailor the food to their particular taste. These options that customize their meals also help to reduce food waste. The beverages on offer include a selection of local Swiss wines and spirits. The wines are served using a new and more eco-friendly dispensing system that enhances both the quality of the wine and the lounge’s recycling credentials.
