If you have problem with allergies than Swiss Airlines may be the only way for traveling for you. SWISS has teamed up with the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation1 (ECARF) to offer a several new in-flight initiatives with aim to help passengers suffering from allergies. World’s first officially certified allergy friendly airline will begin to implement a thorough overhaul of their onboard menus, cabins and lounges to accommodating passengers with substantial allergen issues. First and business Class passengers will be offered pillows stuffed with synthetic materials, as an alternative to traditional down-filled versions, and SWISS will also stop using decorative flowers and air fresheners in its cabins. Onboard toilets will feature soaps that are sensitive on the skin.
The new product, which will be introduced from the beginning of May onwards, will see lactose- and gluten- free food and beverage alternatives (such as lactose-free coffee cream and a lactose-free version of the popular SWISS chocolate bar) offered as standard on all SWISS flights.
Depending on the length of the flight, SWISS guests with allergies or other intolerances may further request special snacks (candy bars, yoghurt or cakes) that pay due and full regard to their condition. Alternative dairy and bread products will also be available in all SWISS Lounges in Switzerland. And, as at present, allergy sufferers will be able to order special meals tailored to their needs in all seating classes on long-haul services and in Business Class within Europe up to 24 hours before their scheduled departure. Also, SWISS cabin crew members are trained to respond to an allergic emergency, and histamine tablets will be available if needed.
