Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 17 February 2009

Qatar Airways has revamped its Economy Class inflight-service on all flights operating to and from the UK.

All onboard meals are now served in a new presentation style using recyclable materials, the move is aimed at enhancing passengers’ overall flying experience.

With see through trays, bright meal cartons and cutlery packs, as well as a personal table mat in a variety of different colours, Qatar Airways envisages onboard mealtimes being extremely well-receivede.

Given the environmental issues and concerns that are paramount in the travel industry today, the new light-weight trays and the disposable mugs and boxes are 99% recyclable, offering a more eco-friendly way to serve inflight meals.

For the main meals of lunch and dinner each tray will offer a flavour of the Middle East with a regional dressing or dip, such as humus, to serve with the fresh salad starter accompanied by Arabic bread.

Passengers will be given a choice of three main courses, including a lighter option for the more health conscious.

Malaysian chicken curry, fish and fennel pot pie and Indian style kadi pakora are among the selection of main meals.

In addition to fresh fruit, a healthy yoghurt and croissant with preserves, Economy passengers travelling at breakfast time will be able to choose from two hot dishes such as Zucchini and Majoran Fritatta with Cherry tomatoes or Apple and Cinnamon crepe with maple syrup and berry garnish.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, “Over the years, scientific research has demonstrated that food presentation makes an enormous contribution to the enjoyment of a meal. With this in mind, our new-look meal trays are guaranteed to satisfy passenger taste-buds across the Economy Class cabin.”

Following the introduction of this new tray service on flights between Doha and London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Manchester, Qatar Airways plans to roll out the concept across the remainder of its international network over the next few months.
