SWISS takes egg-tapping aloft

15 April 2014

SWISS will be encouraging its inflight guests to experience a traditional Swiss custom over the Easter weekend. From Good Friday to Easter Sunday the airline will be offering Business Class travellers on its European flights coloured hard-boiled eggs and inviting them to play “Eiertütschen” (egg-tapping) with their neighbour. Also aboard for the period will be colourful chocolate eggs in place of the usual SWISS chocolate bars. And all premium-class passengers on SWISS’s long-haul flights will be presented with their own classic chocolate Easter Bunny.

SWISS customers travelling over the Easter weekend can enjoy a well-known Swiss tradition during their time aloft: “Eiertütschen”, or egg-tapping, which will be offered on board for the first time ever between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The custom, which has a long tradition among Swiss families, will be celebrated in the SWISS Business cabin on almost all European flights. The game – consisting of two red-coloured hard-boiled eggs also adorned with the Swiss cross – will also come with instructions and Aromat seasoning to make it not just enjoyable but tasty as well. Business Class travellers on longer European flights will also be offered a Lindt Gold Bunny.

Other SWISS passengers will enjoy a taste of Easter on board, too. Throughout the holiday weekend, colourful chocolate eggs will be distributed instead of the usual SWISS chocolate bars. And on long-haul services customers in SWISS Business will be offered a classic Lindt Gold Bunny, while those in SWISS First will receive a chocolate Easter Bunny from Sprüngli confectioners.
