Swiss is now selling Business Lounge access to economy class passengers.

The offer is being made available to all economy passengers flying Swiss and other members of the Lufthansa group.

It covers the Business Lounges in Zurich and Geneva airports.  And, as one might expect in Switzerland, lounge admission (for one person) will set you back CHF39 (Euros 36).

Full details of lounge amenities, how to locate and book access and so on can be found on

It would appear that lounge access is being made available to passengers taking either long- or short-haul flights.

The publicity blurb states that Business Lounge access is available to passengers who have “booked a valid ticket for a Swiss, Lufthansa, Austrian or Edelweiss flight.”
