SWISS International Air Lines is renowned for their impeccable service and style, as well as their mission to bring Swiss culture onboard every flight. For the past 15 years, SWISS has been featuring their Taste of Switzerland menus, an innovative program that recruits the best chefs from around the country to create and curate menus for SWISS premium flyers.

From the March to early June, 2019, SWISS will be showcasing the culinary delights of Canton Zurich. First Class and SWISS Business travelers on long-haul flights from Switzerland will enjoy multi-course meals by Stefan Heilemann, executive chef of the Michelin 2-star Ecco Zurich restaurant, located in the Atlantis by Giardino Hotel.

Ecco Zurich is known as one of Switzerland’s most intriguing restaurants. Ecco’s mission has been to play with the ideas of contrasts and to create food that’s truly one-of-a-kind and delicious. Heilemann features flavors that are intense, yet pure. Distinctive, yet unexpected. Creating something seemingly exotic, from local seasonal ingredients. This spring on SWISS, expect simple, classic presentation to be combined with daring, exquisite flavor.
