Top deal: Lufthansa / SWISS combined Business-First fares

Fly business class to Asia on a premium partner carrier, and then continue your journey to Europe or elsewhere in first class with Lufthansa or SWISS.

Lufthansa and SWISS have created a special fare deal that allows you to combine business class and first class fares, described as a mixed Business-First Class fare.

This means that you can fly in business class to Asia on a Lufthansa or SWISS premium partner airline (including the likes of Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, ANA, United Airlines and more), and then onwards to your final destination in Europe or elsewhere in their highly-regarded first class product.

The fares can be booked via multiple gateways in Asia, North and South America, and Africa to 4 hubs in the heart of Europe – Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich or Vienna, allowing connections to over 170 destinations in Europe.

These fares are designed to be creative, bespoke fares that you can’t book yourself on a standard booking site, and as such there are a huge amount of variables to take into consideration.

We’ve broken down a few different itineraries for you, but the best way to secure the deal is through a travel specialist like italktravel (just fill out your details in the secure enquiry form below and be sure to include any preferred airlines, stopovers or routing options in the ‘Extra Information’ box at the bottom).
