In 2019, the number of airBaltic passengers who chose to pre-order their meal from a menu of over 70 different fresh meals, increased by 49.5%, while the popularity of inflight meals grew 19.8%.
Zane Pabērza, inflight services manager in airBaltic said: “We follow the industry trends and are now updating our pre-order menu once a year. It is important for us to offer fresh options to our passengers and cater to a large variety of dietary needs. Our new approach as well as the launch of pre-order menu in Tallinn has helped for the service to grow more popular.”
This year the airline is continuing to gradually replace single use plastics in its on-board service, working on more environmentally-friendly packaging. It is evaluating suppliers more thoroughly, prioritising those that can fulfil our sustainability requirements, Pabērza added.
The carrier offers an extensive meal pre-order system with more than 70 fresh dishes available up to 24 hours before departure.
