SWISS ties up with After Seven for winter gourmet dining


Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is continuing its ‘SWISS Taste of Switzerland’ luxury inflight dining programme, which involves partnerships with top Michelin-starred and GaultMillau-point chefs from Swiss restaurants. The winter 2022/2023 menu features culinary creations from the high-end After Seven restaurant in Canton Valais, accompanied by wines and cheeses from the region.

The gourmet dining programme began in December 2002, offering long-haul guests in first class, business class and more recently, premium economy class, a ‘journey of culinary discovery’ through Switzerland’s cantons (regions). To date, 76 guest chefs representing each of Switzerland’s 26 cantons have presented inflight menus.

For the next three months, premium travellers on SWISS long-haul flights from Zurich can enjoy meals created by chef Florian Neubauer, the youngest chef in Europe to earn two Michelin stars, and the present holder of a combined 32 GaultMillau points. Neubauer is executive chef at After Seven, which is part of the Backstage Hotel, a luxury property in Zermatt that overlooks the Matterhorn.

The After Seven restaurant serves cuisine to match the stunning views

“For me, cooking and travel are closely connected,” Florian Neubauer stated. “It’s my passion to discover the new and to play with ingredients from other countries. So I’m particularly pleased to have this opportunity to bring the varied tastes of Switzerland closer to SWISS’s inflight guests.”
