AIR-GLACIERS and FORTIS
A perfect partnership
FORTIS is very pleased and proud that the cooperation with the aviation company of AIR-GLACIERS has been realized and FORTIS is now the official timekeeper. The history of FORTIS’s aviation history plays an important role in this partnership. Like FORTIS, AIR-GLACIERS is one of the most traditional Swiss brands, which has been independently active since its establishment in 1965.

At the start of this great collaboration, FORTIS provides the employees of AIR-GLACIERS with a total of ten specially designed Flieger Professional Chronographs.
In 2018 a special watch design, specially developed for this new partnership, is to be launched. The watch is produced as a limited edition and is marketed in the regular retail trade as well as through a variety of channels using the Fortis network.
AIR-GLACIERS – Rescue flights and more!
Already since 1965, AIR-GLACIERS, headquartered in Sion, has been in the service of people. AIR-GLACIERS was founded by Bruno Bagnoud, a pioneer with great visions. In Switzerland, AIR-GLACIERS has more than seven bases, mainly covering the Valais area. The 2 Bernese Bases, Saanen and Lauterbrunnen, are important strategic bases in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Not only are gondolas installed, heli-skiers are dropped off on peaks, scenic and transport flights are completed. Day after day, the team of the AIR-GLACIERS rescues desperate alpinists or skiers in the Swiss Alps.
As an owner of an AIR- GLACIERS „Rescue Card“, you can also benefit from the fast and professional emergency aid of the AIR-GLACIERS in an emergency!
AIR-GLACIERS also offers charter flights from Sion, La Chaux-de-Fonds and Geneva to Corsica, Elba and St. Tropez with the two-engine turboprop airplanes King-Air 200 (BE20) during the summer season. July, September and October, 3 flights from Berne to St. Tropez are offered.
AIR-GLACIERS has recently operated with a Business Jet of the type Citation M2. Whether businessmeeting in Bruxelles or spa trip for pleasure – AIR-GLACIERS flies you safely and quickly to any destination of your choice.
We at FORTIS are really looking forward to have a longlasting – hopefully neverending – partnership with AIR-GLACIERS – a company that saves lifes, since 1965. From the pillars of their brand and company we share the same ideas and visions.
