Swiss International Air Lines has extended its contract with the Swiss Football Association (SFV) by four years until June 2028 and will therefore remain the official airline of the Swiss national football teams. This agreement covers flights for all 14 national teams, including the women's and men's senior national teams as well as the youth selection teams and beach soccer teams.

Heike Birlenbach, Chief Commercial Officer of Swiss, emphasised the importance of the partnership: "Football is one of the most popular sports in Switzerland and worldwide. That is why, as Switzerland's leading airline, it is a matter close to our hearts to support football." SFV General Secretary Robert Breiter also expressed his delight at the extension of the cooperation, which is based on great trust and the common goal of international success.

Swiss has been involved in the sports sector for many years and, in addition to the SFV, also supports Swiss Athletics, the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation, Swiss Olympic, Swiss Paralympic and Swiss Ski. Swiss is also a partner of important international sporting events in Switzerland, such as the International Lauberhorn Races in Wengen and the Weltklasse Zurich athletics meeting.
