While the new Swiss International Air Lines uses the typeface "Univers", the Swissair you mention used to use the font "Futura".

Other famous places in which this font is used is in the Volkswagen corporate ID and on the posters of most of Stanley Kubrick's movies.

Hope this helps!

BTW, I got CH-SANS too as font for SWISS, but it looks equally the same as Univers.

to lsgg,
I think I had the corporate SR font somewhere here on my PC,
otherwise contact Christian Leduc at SWISS-VA, he will have it!
Note that he is on vacation right now...

If you need copies of logo's in BMP's etc, those I have immidiatly should you need them, also the designs for the MD-11's and 747-300's are in my possesion, but only the SWISSAIR and SWISSAIR ASIA titles of the font and the complete aircraft decalling with the tail cross and Asian marking.

Is that Bold Futura?

That's not quite the same if you compare...

Of course but better than nothing...  Smile

The "S" seems to have been reworked, and the space between some letter was reduced...
