SWISS airline has introduced new amenity kits for its business class passengers on long-haul flights. In collaboration with Swiss knife and luggage brand Victorinox, the airline has launched six different kits “in a multifunctional design”. These will be available during different time periods on-board for the next three years. Passengers travelling to Switzerland will be offered a “high-quality metal tin that is modelled on the Victorinox suitcase design and can further be used as a pen or pencil box”. Guests travelling from Switzerland will get a “passport holder, a travel toiletries bag with inner pockets and a longer bag with an inner pocket”. All kits will include a toothbrush, toothpaste, lip salve, sleep mask, socks and ear plugs. This spring the carrier is also offering premium passengers on intercontinental flights a range of meals created by Franck Reynaud, Michelin starred chef de cuisine Canton Valais ski and vacation resort Hostellerie du Pas del’ Ours. Dishes include gravad Valais per ch with horseradish and yoghurt remoulade, served with absin themarinated cucumber, braised beef with Humagne Rouge sauce, and lemon sole with bouillabaisse sauce.
