SkyWork Airlines launches ‘Hotel and Airport Transfers’ programme.

Tuesday 3rd April 2012

SkyWork Airlines, which is this week marking one year on its London City Airport-Bern route, has launched a new Hotel and Airport Transfers programme, offering its passengers the flexibility to book hotel accommodation and airport transfers via its revamped website:

It gives passengers the choice of booking a wide range of three, four or five star premier hotels at 11 different locations throughout the Bernese Oberland including the popular winter and summer resorts of Interlaken, Gstaad, Adelboden, Grindelwald, Kandersteg, Lauterbrunnen, Lenk, Murren and Wengen.

Passengers seeking hotel accommodation can connect to the selected hotel's website to complete their reservation and book an airport transfer. The new programme means that visitors heading for Bern and the Bernese Oberland can now be taken directly to their chosen hotel destination by transfer vehicle, offering maximum convenience and saving valuable time - ideal for skiers and walkers keen to get into the mountains and for time-pressed business travellers. With the added advantage of a speedy transit on arrival at Bern, SkyWork passengers can now reach Interlaken, for example, in less than three hours from take-off at London City Airport.

SkyWork Airlines' CEO Tomislav Lang added: "We are delighted to be launching the new hotel booking and transfer programme in conjunction with some of Switzerland's finest hotels located in some of the most exclusive Alpine resorts in the world. The new programme offers passengers enhanced flexibility and the added convenience of speedier transfer times, reinforcing our strong emphasis on customer service. "

Participating hotels include:

Adelboden Park Hotel Bellevue (4 star), The Cambrian (4 star)

Grindlewald Central Hotel Wolter (3 star), Hotel Spinne (4 star),

The Krenz & Post (4 star)

Gstaad Grand Hotel Bellevue (5 star)

Interlaken Linder Grand Beau Rivage (5 star)

Lauterbrunnen Hotel Silberhorn (3 star)

Lenk The Lenkerhof (5 star)

Murren Hotel Eiger (4 star)

Wengen Hotel Caprice (4 star), The Beausite Park Hotel & Spa (4 star)
