Economy-class travelers can look forward to an exclusively vegetarian three-course Hiltl meal option.
This year, SWISS is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its collaboration with Hiltl of Zurich, the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world.
In honor of this special occasion, Switzerland’s national airline will be offering an exclusively vegetarian three-course Hiltl meal option to economy-class travelers on selected long-haul flights this May.
The long-standing partnership between the two began in 2009 when Hiltl vegetarian meals were first offered aboard SWISS flights as part of the airline’s award-winning “SWISS Taste of Switzerland” inflight foodservice programme. Soon after, the airline expanded its range of vegetarian offerings on board.
Economy-class passengers can look forward to three courses: a starter of a spicy beetroot tabbouleh, a main course choice of penne with vegetarian bolognaise or a massaman curry, and a vegan mango mousse for dessert.
Meanwhile, meat lovers will still be able to order any of six à la carte meals via swiss.com ahead of their flight.
First and Business Class travelers will also be able to enjoy special Hiltl anniversary meals in the month of May. SWISS First customers will have the additional option for their main course of a vegetarian Tofu Mirsang, while SWISS Business travelers can opt for potato gnocchi in a saffron sauce.
