SWISS has partnered with Michelin-starred After Seven restaurant in Canton Valais to serve its First and Business Class travellers culinary creations from the establishment. Passengers on board SWISS long-haul flights this winter from Zurich will enjoy Neubauer’s creations featuring specialities of Canton Valais as part of the ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ inflight culinary programme.
The high-end restaurant is managed by Executive Chef and Managing Director Florian Neubauer and is part of the Backstage Hotel which comprises 20 luxury chalets and apartments set against the spectacular Matterhorn.
“SWISS and After Seven share the same premium philosophy and derive the same sheer pleasure from pampering their guests,” says Julia Hillenbrand, Head of Brand Experience at SWISS. “We both attach huge importance to delivering the highest service quality. And I am delighted that, from today onwards, we can offer the culinary creations of this innovative Valais kitchen aboard our flights.”
“For me, cooking and travel are closely connected,” Florian Neubauer said. “It’s my passion to discover the new and to play with ingredients from other countries. So I’m particularly pleased to have this opportunity to bring the varied tastes of Switzerland closer to SWISS’s inflight guests.”
The airline is serving its Premium Economy Class travellers on outbound flights from Switzerland the culinary option of a three-course meal that features Canton Valais specialities.
