Swiss International Air Lines offers cheese fondue to economy passengers across Europe from Dec. 1.
Recently launched Swiss Saveurs menu concept, is being renewed which allows passengers across cabins to order a la carte food, drink and snack options inspired by traditional Swiss dishes.
The offerings for the 2018-2019 winter season include a traditional Swiss cheese fondue made of 50 percent Vacherin Fribourgeois cheese (noted for its nutty flavors and long-lasting taste) and 50 percent Gruyère cheese. The fondue is served alongside bread for dipping.
Other options include hot chocolate (made fresh from Swiss chocolate), freshly baked pain au lait served with a Cailler chocolate bar, and a Carac tartlet, a tartlet made with shortcrust pastry and filled with dark chocolate praline before being topped with bright green frosting.
The fondue is available on flights from Geneva to Malaga, Athens, Stockholm, Moscow, Gothenburg, Hurghada, Lisbon, St. Petersburg, and Marrakesh. It can be paired with a charcuterie board complete with cured ham, Gruyere salami, and dried meats.
This is the first time economy passengers can enjoy the treat.
Swiss also offers the ability to have snacks that range from pastries and sandwiches to salads delivered right to your gate for orders placed up to an hour before departure.
