An early spring day later en Valais and it was time to leave
the "Aéroport de Sion" again. For the "Flughafen Zürich" it was, as long as everything goes in the right direction!.
Here are the pictures:

I don´t know why the Swiss people built so many castles around their cities.
It doesn´t happen to me to climb up an hill for the castle one, just to notice that this is certainly the castle two and definitely not the place where you want to go!.
Ok, the sun was nice and warm, so downhill it was and up for the next example and a nice view around.
It doesn´t matter in the end that it was foggy in London-Heathrow, the planes destination in between and we built up a delay at around 1,5 hours, no way.
You should be prepared for things like this around special routings. Well, I hope so!.

More to come.
Bis bald. The Tripreporter.

Sun, snow and SIR


"Sun, snow and SIR", looks certainly like not the everyday routing!.

Well, it seems you need sun and a clear sky for a flight like this in Switzerland. Fresh and foggy it was at the "Flughafen Zürich" and more and more clear in direction Valais, the "Aéroport de Sion". Like pre-ordered, the days before cold and snow and superb sunny announced for the weekend. Not to talk about these marvellous views along the way for one or two or thousand snowy mountain peaks!.

Definitely a special and really nice experience it was on these out-of-the-ordinary routing.
The plane continues to London-Heathrow and straight back to pick up a number of english ski tourists, maybe not even aware that this is something special.
Ok, that`s the way it is.
The service will be operated four times by Swiss/Helvetic to check the market conditions these way.
May I see someone from the crew later again?. Now that might be a surprise, or not?.

More to come.
Au revoir. The Tripreporter.
