Best of SWISS Taste of Switzerland and Personalized Business Class Service launched by SWISS
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has launched an individualized Business Class service offering on all long-haul flights. In addition to the traditional ‘restaurant’ service, business class passengers can now choose a new ‘casual dining’ option and receive their starter, main course, and dessert together and at a time of their choosing.
In addition, the pre-landing service has been replaced by a new ‘SWISS Bistro’ concept that enables business class passengers to choose from a range of hot and cold items, as well as snacks, at any time after the main service until shortly prior to landing.
‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ Inflight Culinary Program
SWISS is offering Business and First Class passengers selections of the best dishes created by Switzerland-based chefs for the airline’s award-winning ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ inflight culinary program. Available for the next six months on long-haul flights from Switzerland, these dishes from top Switzerland-based chefs will be accompanied by Swiss regional wines and specialty cheeses.
“SWISS Taste of Switzerland” has drawn 70 guest chefs from all the country’s cantons (similar to states in the U.S.) since the program began in 2002. Chefs currently featured include Silvia Manser, Silvio Germann, Jean-Marc Soldati, Mike Wehrle, Thomas Amstutz, Hans-Jörg and Anja Zingg, Franck Reynaud, Christian Kuchler, Lorenzo Albrici and Rolf Hiltl.
