SWISS Air Lines and Lufthansa have been distributing Easter chocolates that would have otherwise been given to passengers.
SWISS distributed more than a ton of Easter chocolate originally intended for onboard guests to a variety of health care providers as a thank-you for their great efforts during the current COVID-19 crisis.
While Lufthansa teamed up with its LSG Sky Chefs partners in Frankfurt and Munich, to donate some 300,000 chocolate easter bunnies to hospitals and welfare institutions in Germany.
These treats were also initially intended to delight passengers during the Easter holidays season, but given the demand downturn, the teams diverted the supplies to clinics in both cities, to the Munich food pantry and the Karl Hack Foundation in Rhineland-Palatinate.
Kristin Neumann, CFO LSG Group says: “In the extraordinary situation in which the LSG Group finds itself, there are two things that are our absolute priority: maintaining our liquidity and the health of our employees. We have already introduced many measures on both fronts, thus creating important prerequisites for going forward. It is simply part of the DNA of our company to stand together and support each other during difficult times. I am experiencing this right now. And from this experience I draw courage, strength and confidence.”
