Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) continues to maintain its commitment to sports at the Swiss national level and announced the extension of its existing partnership with Swiss Ice Hockey.
SWISS will continue to fly the Switzerland ice hockey teams to and from their tournaments around the world as the Official Airline of Swiss Ice Hockey, the sport’s national association. The accord now runs until 2020, when Switzerland will be hosting the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
As The Airline of Switzerland, SWISS has long attached great value to supporting Swiss sports, and involves itself as extensively as possible in the highlights of the country’s sporting calendar. On the winter sports front SWISS supports both Swiss Ice Hockey and Swiss Ski, and is a major sponsor of the International Lauberhorn Ski Races. SWISS is also the Official Airline of Swiss Athletics and the Weltklasse Zürich track-and-field event, the Swiss Handball Federation and the Swiss Football Association. And SWISS is proud to support the national teams of all these organizations in their training and their major competition events.
