Swiss airline Helvetic Airways has modified its inflight culinary concept, with the new meals 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 Swiss regional airline will be presenting its on-board culinary offerings in “practical and appealingly-designed” meal boxes in Switzerland’s national colours of red and white. Their contents, which are freshly prepared using local ingredients will help to ensure a refined culinary ambience aloft, the airline hopes.
“Our range of inflight food and beverage offerings reflects not only our Swiss values, but also the quality criteria and the care with which they have been selected,” said 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 colourful Greek salad with moussaka.
In addition to mineral water from the Gontenbad spring in Switzerland’s Appenzell region, the new Helvetic Airways inflight culinary concept is further accompanied by a wide selection of soft drinks, which are also entirely complimentary. Alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer or sparkling wine are available on board for purchase.
Helvetic travellers who would like to tailor their culinary experience aloft more closely to their preferences and tastes may do so up to 72 hours before departure: a range of special meals including kosher, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options can be ordered at no additional cost via the https://booking.helvetic.com/ reservation platform.
