SWISS Introduces Doctor on Board Programme

SWISS adopted Lufthansa Group’s special Doctor on Board programme on August 01.

Under the programme, registered doctors can be easily identified by the crew on their passenger list and discreetly contacted in the event of an in-flight medical emergency.

Doctors who register to participate in the programme are clearly indicated on the passenger lists of SWISS flights, and are personally welcomed aboard.

The programme is designed to ensure that, in the event of a medical emergency during the flight, the crew can immediately identify such doctors and can approach them for assistance discreetly, without unsettling other passengers.

Participating doctors can also be identified in this way on the flights of Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, where the programme is already well established.
