Hertz Switzerland and Air Zermatt launch sightseeing helicopter tours
Hertz Switzerland and leading Swiss helicopter company Air Zermatt have teamed to provide Hertz car rental customers the opportunity to enjoy helicopter sightseeing tours. This includes the helicopter flight named ‘Hertz Prestige Collection’ by Air Zermatt in honor of the new partnership with Hertz.
The exhilarating trip provides breathtaking views of the Matterhorn; the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau trio; and the Aletsch Glacier peaks in the flight’s one hour duration. The helicopter tours are available to Hertz customers who pick up their rental car in Switzerland.
The partnership coincides with both companies celebrating respective milestone anniversaries: Air Zermatt its 50th and Hertz its 100th.
Gerold Biner, CEO of Air Zermatt, said: “That Air Zermatt and Hertz are both celebrating a big anniversary in 2018 is pure coincidence, but it is a beautiful sign of how aligned the two companies are. Commitment to safety, comfort and a superior customer experience are company values intrinsic to both Air Zermatt and Hertz. For this reason, we are pleased to extend our shared values into a partnership that will further benefit our customers.”
Roberto Delvecchio, Director of Sales and Marketing at Hertz Switzerland added: “It is a great honor for us to be working together with Air Zermatt and that a fantastic Hertz Prestige Collection helicopter sightseeing flight is named after us. We’re delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy Switzerland’s stunning views by air as well as by car.”
The collaboration has also led to Hertz Switzerland and Volvo Cars Switzerland providing the Air Zermatt team with easy access to Volvo cars for company use in a multi-month rental arrangement.
The flights depart from Heliport Zermatt with space for up to five people.
Air Zermatt’s red and white helicopters conduct around 1,700 emergency flights per year, as well as sightseeing, taxi and transport flights.
