British Airways invests in brand new catering on Gatwick flights
British Airways has made a multi-million pound investment in its catering on flights from London Gatwick, with reimagined and improved food across its short and longhaul cabins.
Now available on all flights, the catering brings in new menus featuring new dishes and recipes as part of the airline’s £6.5bn investment for customers. The new food has a focus on provenance with the provider, Newrest, working closely with suppliers in the south of England to source the best quality ingredients.
Customers can enjoy the benefits across all long-haul cabins – World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First – as well as Club Europe on shorthaul. A range of Marks & Spencer products continue to be on offer to Euro Traveller customers.
Carolina Martinoli, British Airways Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “This is the latest development in continuously improving our catering. We’re incredibly proud of this new offering and we hope our customers enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed developing it.”
