Air Astana Upgrades Inflight Catering

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 10 April 2015

Air Astana has upgraded its inflight catering on regional and international flights.

New menus have been introduced from Almaty, Paris and Istanbul flights and will be launched from Astana from 1 May. In response to passenger feedback, the airline will be introducing up to 6 rotating menu cycles across regional routes.

The airline has even introduced manty (steamed dumplings) on a limited number of domestic routes, with a plan to incorporate more Kazakh and regional flavours into the entire range of menus across the network. The traditional dish is presented in one of the 6 cycles for business-class regional flights departing from Astana.

Developing our new menu, we have paid attention to increasing the variety of dishes, with the goal being to create the best flavour combinations and even better quality. If our passengers enjoy the manty, we will look to incorporate it into economy class down the line and further incorporate more regional and especially national dishes in both classes in due course, said Richard Hyland, Air Astana Corporate Chef.
