Surf Air adds flights to Sion in Switzerland

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.’

Surf Air to Syon

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.

My review of Surf Air’s service to Zurich is here.

    One of these steps is eradicated at the really anti social times of day when the Piccadily stops at Turnham Green. (Which it will do all day everyday once they have finally bought new trains for the line – don’t hold your breath.)

    Upminster to LHR through Z1 is only £3.10 if you touch in at an off-peak time, but it really feels like a never-ending slog because of how frequently the District Line stops. The long way round may actually feel quicker due to being more interesting, if you have only light baggage. If you live in Upminster your favoured airports will probably be LCY and SEN anyway.

    How many people actually live in Zone 1? Most N/W/S Londoners can get to Heathrow for £1.50 relatively conveniently if they live near to a TfL station or are one bus away from the numerous buses that go to LHR (soon to be any number of buses). A large proportion of of N/E/S Londoners can get to LCY for £1.50.

    For me, the most convenient route on public transport to LHR is £1.50. If I walk 15 minutes, I can get to LCY for £1.50 and LGW is £3.10 (otherwise it’s an extra £1.50 for a bus). For weekend trips, I can drive to LHR for about £2 in petrol each way and park on a residential street.

      Are we all so desperate to pay only £1.50 in order to get to LHR? Taxi!!!

      • Rob says:

        I’m not!

      • Tilly says:

        Gone are the days i think of us going from home (Essex end of the central line) to LHR by tube and we live only a 5 min walk to the station. It takes forever. We always drive now, unless like when we do a weekend trip we go straight from the office on Friday afternoon so already in zone 1 then fly back into LCY so it’s a quick DLR to Stratford and them jump on the central line home.

      Anyone cracked Stansted yet?

  • Iain says:

    I’ve never seen CT shirts sell for £60

  • Dave says:

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

  • Yawn says:

    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.

  • Gavin says:

    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.

  • Mike says:

    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.

      • John says:

        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.

        • Mike says:

          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.

  • Billy says:

    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.

    • John says:

      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.
