Not only is Edelweiss adding a 14th A320 in 2024, the carrier is also boosting some of its products. Firstly, with business class passengers being able to experience exclusive pralines to Edelweiss from Confiserie Beschle in Basel.

The carrier will also offer its business class guests a rosé champagne from the Gruet vineyard as a welcome drink. For all classes, the carrier will rotate drinks throughout 2024, Pepita, Sinalco, Elmer Citro and Rivella.

Commenting on their new products, Edelweiss’ Head of Product & Services, Martin Rast, says, “We have listened to the feedback from our guests and have revised the menus and snacks in particular. At Edelweiss, we continue to offer a full culinary service in all classes, which is of course included in the flight price.”

“And as we look ahead to the new year, I am already looking forward to a revised film offer on short-haul flights, where we can now also offer our guests blockbuster movies. Naturally also free of charge.”
