Swiss international airline meals will vary depending on your flight class and flight time duration. Since early 2018 the airline now offers a buy on board menu program on flights from Geneva and food isn’t included in Economy Light fares on these services. Also, note that all SWISS Economy fares on flights shorter than 1 hour from/to Switzerland no longer include meals.

The airline offers vegetarian inflight meals in all flight classes (that provide a hot meal) based on recipes from Swiss restaurant Hiltl. Their “Taste of Switzerland” program is available on all flights from Switzerland which feature various Swiss regional cuisines and look out for the Swiss chocolate!

Swiss now offers a buy on board meal concept on flights from Geneva and economy light fares (under 1hr to/from Switzerland), see the menu below to see what you can purchase to eat or drink on your next flight. Click on the below picture to view the entire inflight menu. This buy on board menu has many high-quality products at very reasonable prices; in fact, I would go as far to say that it’s one of the better buy on board programs in Europe.


Depending on the flight duration, you will either be served a small snack, light meal or hot meal on longer flights. All meals and drinks are included in the price of your ticket. Sandwiches served onboard European Swiss flights are made fresh three times daily in a Swiss bakery.
All European flights from Switzerland will always include products that come from Switzerland, a new concept that the airline hopes will guarantee even more freshness and authenticity.


Passengers will be served two hot meals during their flight one of which will be the Hiltl special vegetarian meal option. Drinks (including alcohol) are still free. You can also upgrade your inflight meal in economy class to a more ‘business’ class style meal. The Swiss-A la carte dining meals include six fantastic meal upgrade options, as well as some additional inflight wine options. You can order these meals at least 24 hours before departure or when booking your ticket online. For further information on these meals go here.
