Surf Air adds flights to Sion in Switzerland

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Surf Air, the membership based private jet company which recently moved to London City Airport, has launched flights to Sion in Switzerland over the ski season.

This adds a further route to their daily service from London to Zurich.  Sion may be a more useful route than Zurich, since commercial flights to the airport are few and far between.

  1. £15 off £80 spend at CT, Nationwide Simply Rewards. Expires today

  2. If we are doing comparisons, the bus to Cardiff airport is free on Saturdays and Sundays. For my next trip to Heathrow, I followed an HFP trick: a £1 one-way rental with Europcar. Plus fuel of course. But faster and more convenient than a National Express bus. Ugh.

  3. I often go from Tooting to LHR for £1.50 avoiding the usual zone 1 route. It takes about 15 minutes longer but is much less boring. Driving is far quicker than both, however.

  4. You can also get to Gatwick from most of outer London for not much.

    Here’s Heathrow to Gatwick for £6 off peak by tube.
    Touch in at Heathrow, Piccadilly line to Earl’s Court, District Line to West Brompton, touch pink reader, Overground or National Rail to Clapham Junction, National Rail to East Croydon, touch out.
    Touch in again with a different card, national rail to Gatwick touch out.
    It’s possible to get from most of West, North and East London to Clapham Junction via the overground network without entering zone 1.

    If you don’t mind buses the X26 from Heathrow to East Croydon for £1.50 followed by £3.10 for the train is probably as cheap as its going to get.

    • Genghis says:

      Does the different card make a difference? I occasionally do the touch out touch in at East Croydon on the same card and it’s charged as two separate journeys.

      • It shouldn’t be necessary to change card unless ECR has set an emergency OSI, in which case you are probably going to be getting on a replacement bus.

        • Fair enough, I guess I assumed most HFP readers have a wallet full of credit cards as I do. Had never thought of a reason to risk it linking the journeys.

  5. The X26 bus from Croydon to Heathrow is also £1.50 with contact less payment.

    On a good day it takes about an hour but it does tend to get stuck in traffic.

    • An hour??? Minimum 80 minutes and only on the 4am and post-10pm trips. Even the 5am trips tend to take longer and on a school day you’d better allow 3 hours. Doesn’t help that if they are early the drivers like to wait around Sutton, and if they are late they still spend ages chatting at the Kingston changeover.

  6. “take the Overground to Stratford and touch the pink reader again, then get on the District Line again and go up to Upminster” …… I go through Stratford station 5-6 days a week and I’m pretty certain there is no district line. To pick up the district from Stratford you have to either take the central line 1 stop to Mile End or the Jubilee line or DLR to West Ham and change.

    • RussellH says:

      Correct! I am annoyed with myself for not picking that up immediately.

      I have done Gunnerbury – Stratford – Prince Regent for Excel (WTM) a few times; not much slower than via Westminster and Canning Town changes, and, as others have mentioned, vastly more interesting.

  7. OT thinking of downgrading from BAPP to the fee free BA Amex as I have triggered the 2-4-1 voucher. I have cleared the balance down to zero but avios do not transfer until 14th February. Do I need wait for the avios to transfer before I downgrade or will I lose them? Hoping to get a couple of months fee rebate by doing it before January month end. Thanks for any guidance.

    This reminds me of when I was a kid and lived near Harrow but met a girl near Sutton. Took me hours to work out how to get there with my Zones 4,5 and 6 travel card. Although that was mostly busses.

    • When I was a kid, I could go anywhere on South Yorkshire Transport buses for 2p. It eventually went up to 5p, but I had a bus pass to get to college by then and used that on weekdays.

  9. Trystan says:

    Can’t believe I can get from Cardiff direct to Heathrow now for £1 on National Express if booking in advance! And it only takes 3hours!!

  10. OT Does Amex give bonus points for adding supplementary cardholders on the SPG card? Thanks.

  11. I’ve been using the X-26 from West London for a long time. About 45 minutes to get to LHR.

      Came here to say this. £1.50 from Croydon via kingston and the recent x26 I was on had usb sockets!
