Swiss Gets First "Al­lergy-Freindly" Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion

Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

Swiss Air has teamed up with the Euro­pean Cen­tre for Al­lergy Re­search Foun­da­tion (ECARF) to of­fer guests with al­ler­gies a more com­fort­able travel ex­pe­ri­ence. The car­rier has in­tro­duced a num­ber of in­no­va­tive ground and in­flight prod­ucts de­signed to en­hance the air travel ex­pe­ri­ence for al­lergy sufferers.

These in­no­va­tions in­clude new al­ter­na­tive (lac­tose- and gluten­free) food and drinks, along with cabin in­te­rior changes. Mod­i­fi­ca­tions are be­ing made to the cab­ins as well, with the elim­i­na­tion of dec­o­ra­tive flow­ers and air fresh­en­ers that can cause si­nus ir­ri­ta­tions and the use of gen­tler soaps in the lava­to­ries. First and Busi­ness Class pas­sen­gers will have an op­tion of syn­thetic pil­lows as op­posed to the down-filled va­ri­ety.

With all of the changes Swiss Air has made, they are the first air­line to re­ceive the ECARF seal of ap­proval as an “al­lergy friendly ”air­line.
