Gate Gourmet has strengthened its long-term relationship with Swiss International Air Lines extending its contract up to 2022.
Operating from both Zurich and Geneva, Gate Gourmet will continue to design and develop fresh and varied meals across the airline’s first, business and economy classes on all its 100+ international routes from Switzerland.
Gate Gourmet will continue to invest in resources and people to deliver ongoing innovation across all areas of the airlines’ in-flight catering.
“We are very proud of our long-term relationship with the national carrier of our home country and we are delighted they have put their trust in us until 2022,” said gategroup’s CEO Xavier Rossinyol. “Delivering a top-quality product across all classes, consistently, and showcasing the work of the country’s talented chefs enables us maintain Swiss’ reputation for delivering a top-notch customer experience.”
Among the recent successes of the partnership was the introduction of the award-winning SWISS Taste of Switzerland concept where top chefs create seasonal dishes from across the Swiss regions for First and Business Class guests. Menus change every three months when the creations of selected guest chefs feature seasonal ingredients with a distinct Swiss heritage.
Gate Gourmet has worked closely with SWISS and the guest chefs to create dishes to their recipes so that they taste just as sophisticated above the clouds as they do in a gourmet restaurant. As a result, the “International Travel Catering Association” has awarded the SWISS Taste of Switzerland concept its Mercury Award.
