Swiss people drink Rivella on the ski slopes, Sinalco at the open-air swimming pool, Elmer Citro on school trips and Pepita is a memory of their childhood and youth for many. Edelweiss is now bringing these cult drinks on board and offering an even more varied range of drinks on all flights. In addition to the existing drinks, Pepita, Sinalco, Elmer Citro and Rivella Rot will now be available on all Edelweiss flights on a rotating basis.

Martin Rast, Head of Product and Services at Edelweiss: "For years we have been focusing on regional Swiss products of the highest quality for our in-flight catering. We are underlining this promise with the introduction of these Swiss cult drinks. For our Swiss guests, these brands are associated with many memories. For our foreign guests, we bring a piece of Swiss history and culture closer. We are convinced that all our guests will love the new beverage selection."

From now on, the Swiss cult drinks will be available free of charge on all Edelweiss flights in all classes on a rotating basis.
