Swiss airline Helvetic Airways has introduced a new in-flight culinary experience “that combines quality, freshness and Swissness all in one”. The new meals will be served free of charge to all travellers flying from or to Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg or Bern Belp airports as part of Helvetic Airways’ all-inclusive air travel product.
The in-flight foodservice concept for the summer-timetable services from and to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport have been modified, with food served in meal boxes in Switzerland’s national colours of red and white.
“Our range of in-flight food and beverage offerings reflects not only our Swiss values, but also the quality criteria and the care with which they have been selected,” explained Franz Lindauer, who is responsible for the Product & Inflight Experience at Helvetic Airways. “And these new culinary creations should truly help to get our travellers into the holiday or the back-to- Switzerland mood.”
Travellers on the morning flights to Larnaca and Santorini from Helvetic Airways’ new EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg base will be served a typical Swiss breakfast with an omelette, while travellers inbound to the EuroAirport from these destinations will be offered a traditional ‘Kalbsgeschnetzeltes’ sliced veal with rösti dish. On its services to and from Jerez de la Frontera, Helvetic will offer its guests a Spanish-inspired generously garnished sandwich.
And Helvetic travellers from and to Bern Belp Airport can look forward to a Greek salad with moussaka. In addition to mineral water from the Gontenbad spring in Switzerland’s Appenzell region, the new Helvetic Airways in-flight culinary concept is further accompanied by a wide selection of inclusive soft drinks. Alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer or sparkling wine are available on board for purchase.
