Starting its journey on 11 December 2017, Powdair will offer 21 flights a week between Zurich and Sion, the closest airport to the Swiss resorts of Verbier, Zermatt and Crans Montana.
The new flights from Zurich are planned seven days a week. The return cost of the flight, which takes between 45 minutes and an hour, starts at GBP 172.
The fares of all the classes- economy and business, can also be paid in Swiss francs or euros.
It is worth checking the exchange rate before settling on a payment currency.
The implied CHF / GBP exchange rate on the company’s website was 1.21, while the market rate was close to 1.25.
Given a difference like this, paying the flight fares in Swiss francs makes good sense, depending on the home currency of the debit and credit cards and the exchange and transaction fees charged by the issuer.
In addition to these flights, the operator will connect London City Airport, London Luton, London Southend, Bristol, Manchester, Antwerp and Southampton to Sion.
There are many airlines, where there are no additional charges for skis and snowboards.
In addition, there is a 10% discount for children who are aged 16 and under.
