SWISS Receives First Airbus A320neo With Airspace Cabin

BERLIN – Switzerland’s flag carrier, Swiss, received its first A320neo with the brand-new Airspace cabin.

This comes after the recent delivery of Swiss’s fourth A320neo at the beginning of 2022. 

Following the delivery of HB-JDD, which was delivered at the beginning of January, a fifth A320neo was delivered to Swiss. 

Both aircraft are equipped with an airspace cabin. 

The new cabin features Overhead bins that are 40% bigger and offer space for up to 4 suitcases or 60% more bags.

The cabin is also equipped with mood lightning which adjusts to the time of the day.

Slimmer sidewall panels offer more personal space at shoulder level and create better views out of the window due to the redesigned bezels and completely integrated window shades.

Swiss is a long-standing Airbus Customer, operating almost solely Airbus aircraft, a part of their Boeing 777’s.

Lufthansa Group signed a contract with Airbus in 2018 to equip more than 80 of their new A320 family aircraft on order with the new cabin.

The A320neo family is the most successful aircraft family ever and has an operational reliability rate of over 99,7%.

The aircraft family received nearly 7,900 orders from more than 120 customers worldwide.
