Helvetic Airways modifies its inflight dining concept

Helvetic Airways has modified the inflight foodservice concept for its summer-timetable services from and to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. 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 Switzerland-based regional airline will now be presenting its on-board culinary offerings in practical and appealingly-designed meal boxes in Switzerland’s national colours of red and white.

Franz Lindauer, who is responsible for the Product & Inflight experience at Helvetic Airways, explains:

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. And these new culinary creations should truly help to get our travellers into the holiday or the back-to-Switzerland mood.

Passengers 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 those 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 passengers 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 in line with the Helvetic Airways all-inclusive philosophy. Alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer or sparkling wine are available on board for purchase.

The airline adds that those looking to ‘tailor their culinary experience aloft more closely’ to their preferences and tastes may do so up to 72 hours before departure. Special meals such as kosher, vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options can also be ordered at no additional cost.
