A 3 continent trip including Asia must be utilised to achieve a sale fare. Asian stops/transits on the sale fare are Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai and Beijing only. Other Asian destinations will be at a higher year round airfare route. Transitting via Bangkok has been used to achieve the lead in rate. The key to sale fare availability is the flight between Europe and Asia or vice versa. We suggest this leg of the trip to be during an off peak time.
You are permitted to make your way overland between two points but cannot backtrack. i.e. you cannot fly Sydney - New York // own arrangements to LA // LA - Zurich.
You may choose to travel EAST or WEST without affecting the price.
Taxes range depending on your route, each stopover, flight sector and destination all affect taxes. 1000s of combinations are possible. From price based on Melbourne - Bangkok - Zurich // Frankfurt - LA - Melbourne to achieve the lowest taxes. Taxes can change at any time and are correct as at 18 Nov 13. Taxes are higher for other routes. Enquire with your desired route for a detailed price, our consultants will help you maximise the value of the fare and offer options to fit best around your preferred cities and dates whilst also keeping costs to a minimum. In the example Bangkok is used as a transit only, a stopover will attract higher taxes. Good pricing is also available via Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing at slightly higher levels.
Flying into one destination and out of another only counts as 1 stopover. You may add stopovers in Zurich for additional taxes if you are flying through to another European destination.
1 piece included on all flights at 23kg. Some additional allowances for sporting equipment apply, see SWISS website for more info.
