Financing Options

Your options for financing

Our Lufthansa Group pilots are excellently trained. Clearly, such comprehensive training costs money. If you conclude the declaration of intent to hire with SWISS or Edelweiss, you will not have to finance the training completely on your own. The financing of the training for future SWISS or Edelweiss pilots is split into three parts:

  • At the beginning, you pay your own contribution of CHF 35,000.
  • SWISS or Edelweiss will provide you with a training loan in the amount of CHF 45,000 (for Swiss nationals) respectively CHF 69,000 (for EU/EFTA citizens) with a minimal interest rate. You will comfortably pay back this training loan out of your salary as a pilot.
  • Additionally, you will receive federal subsidies in the amount of CHF 60,000 (for Swiss nationals) respectively CHF 36,000 (for EU/EFTA citizens) – details can be found under VFAL (Verordnung über die Finanzhilfen für Ausbildungen im Bereich der Luftfahrt, the Swiss ordinance on financial aid for aviation training).
