The avionics compartment below the cockpit of a modern passenger plane houses the computers for system control and navigation. All data required for a safe flight is displayed on monitors in the cockpit. The SWISS Technical Division checks the entire electronics system before the pilots come aboard.
The rubber tyres on the undercarriage are exposed to brief but very strong forces when manoeuvring on the runway and during take-off and landing. That is why the tyres of our long-haul aircraft are changed after about 250 flights (approximately every six months). This routine task is performed reliably by the specialists of the SWISS…
The on-board service is highly reliant on a well-functioning infrastructure inside the cabin. Before every flight, the SWISS Technical Division checks the kitchen and seats, the in-flight entertainment and air conditioning, and the lights and oxygen masks. If something is not right, it is corrected immediately.
