Well, it seems you need sun and a clear sky for a flight like this in Switzerland. Fresh and foggy it was at the "Flughafen Zürich" and more and more clear in direction Valais, the "Aéroport de Sion". Like pre-ordered, the days before cold and snow and superb sunny announced for the weekend. Not to talk about these marvellous views along the way for one or two or thousand snowy mountain peaks!.
Here are the pictures:
Definitely a special and really nice experience it was on these out-of-the-ordinary routing.
The plane continues to London-Heathrow and straight back to pick up a number of english ski tourists, maybe not even aware that this is something special.
Ok, that`s the way it is.
The service will be operated four times by Swiss/Helvetic to check the market conditions these way.
May I see someone from the crew later again?. Now that might be a surprise, or not?.
More to come.
Au revoir. The Tripreporter.
