With Helvetic Airways starting a base at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg the airline is offering an updated inflight catering offering.
This will be offered on flights operated by Helvetic Airways from EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. Flights operated on behalf of SWISS will get the onboard service as offered by SWISS at the moment.
The meal are offered as complimentary item- a rare sight these days on short to medium-haul services.
The Swiss regional airline will now be presenting its onboard 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.
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 service is accompanied by a wide selection of soft drinks, which are also complimentary. Alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer or sparkling wine are available onboard for purchase.

“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,” explains 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.”
A rare sight
Helvetic have pivoted away from the usual model where you get a seat and a ride to your destination, rather, they have chosen to offer a full-service on routes they operate for holiday flights.
And that is very different to the market, offering long service comfort amenities on an Embraer E-Jet.
The airline offers three routes from Basel and two routes from Bern, offering summer sun connections for travellers.
For those who wish to be pampered in the air -or don’t want to rely on food offerings in the airport before departure – this could be a tempting offering.
