Oman Air offers à la carte menus on London flights
Muscat, June 27, 2010
Oman Air has launched new à la carte menus on its flights between London Heathrow and Oman’s capital of Muscat.
With caviar, poached fillet of beef, Loch Fyne gravadlax and a wide range of mouth-watering desserts on offer, Oman Air has clearly demonstrated that fine dining has reached new heights.
The airline has designed separate menus for its First Class, Business Class and Economy Class passengers. Each uses the finest seasonal ingredients, draws on both Arabic and European influences and combines contemporary and traditional elements, said a statement.
Oman Air’s chief executive officer Peter Hill says: “We are delighted to be launching these delicious new menus and I am sure that our customers will be impressed. We have worked hard, together with in-flight catering specialists Gate Gourmet, to create menus that offer the very best seasonal produce, fantastic flavours, with a selection and a variety to suit every palate.”
With Oman Air’s flights from London to Muscat leaving in the evening, the airline has created substantial dinner menus, and additionally invites customers to start the following day with a choice of dishes, including a full cooked breakfast.
Gerhard Engleitner, Oman Air’s manager of in-flight menu development, adds: “Our First and Business Class services offer a great selection of dishes, both European and Arabic in flavour.”
All First Class and Business Class meals are served on specially-designed, full size plates, with elegant cutlery and glassware more usually associated with fine restaurants than with air travel, he said. –TradeArabia News Service
