Is a similar scenario conceivable for the Swiss winter season? Hans Wicki, President of Seilbahnen Schweiz, told «SRF»: «Our goal is to achieve this planning security for guests and mountain railways. But of course the planning security should also be equipped with measures that are easy and easy to implement. And are accepted by the population. ” Currently, the discussion about a certificate requirement for the cable cars is still premature. Last winter showed that these were not contagion hotspots.
One company that has voluntarily introduced the certification requirement is the Glacier Express. “The Glacier Express is based on the protection concept of public transport and the measures for tourist traffic and gastronomy”, is on the website, “for this reason we are obliged to adhere to the new conditions adopted on 08.09.2021 of the Federal Council regarding the extension of the certificate requirement. ” Accordingly, since September 13, 2021, all passengers aged 16 and over must show their valid Covid certificate, which documents a vaccination, recovery or test, when boarding.
