SWISS introduces Doctor on Board programme
15 Aug 2018 - by
SWISS International Air Lines has adopted the ‘Doctor on Board’ programme of the Lufthansa Group.
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 doctors and can approach them for assistance. Participating doctors can also be identified in this way on the flights of Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, where the programme is already well established.
Doctors can register for the programme on Lufthansa’s website and will receive benefits including a one-off Miles & More mileage award, a flight voucher, and a reference book on aviation medicine. SWISS offers liability insurance coverage to any doctor who treats a patient aboard its flights.
