SWISSAIR Group’s railway catering contractor Rail Gourmet and station catering company Gourmet Nova are to be transferred to the Compass Group under the terms of a recently-signed asset exchange agreement. The non-binding understanding will see Swissair’s rail operations transferred to Compass in exchange for airline catering business Eurest In-flight. There will be no payments for the exchange, and a date for the transfer has not yet been announced.

Rail Gourmet currently provides on- train catering in Spain, Switzerland, Britain, Belgium and Scandinavia.
