Swiss International Air Lines brought in a new iteration of its seasonal Swiss Saveurs menu on December 1, and one of its outrageous additions is cheese fondue. The best part? All classes, from economy to first, are welcome to indulge.
This winter menu’s fondue is comprised of a traditional cheese ratio: Half Vacherin Fribourgeois cheese and half Gruyère cheese. The fondue is served with bread for dipping, but can also be accompanied by a charcuterie board, complete with dried meats, cured ham and Gruyère salami. The fondue costs 17 Swiss Franc (about $17).
The Swiss Saveurs menu that has been introduced by the airline is an effort to bring Swiss-inspired food options, like fondue, to all cabins for enjoyment. It was designed in conjunction with the Geneva subsidiary Globus and it prides itself on fresh food options made on a daily basis using local and seasonal ingredients.
But this season’s menu doesn’t only consist of fondue. Throughout the winter, travelers can treat themselves to authentic Swiss hot chocolate and fresh pain au lait served with a Cailler chocolate bar. According to Swiss, many of these delicacies are intended to be reminiscent of childhood memories.
In addition, passengers can try the airline’s Bircher muesli or order the month’s special sandwich.
If you’re looking to live the luxe life of eating fondue tens of thousands of feet in the air, you can order it on flights from from Geneva to Malaga, Athens, Stockholm, Moscow, Gothenburg, Hurghada, Lisbon, St. Petersburg and Marrakesh.
