Qatar Airways has introduced its “first range of fully vegan dishes” to its à la carte menu for business class passengers on all flights, designed to cater to the increasing demand for plant-based food while elevating passengers’ culinary experience when they travel with the national airline.
The newly crafted vegan dishes use only the freshest locally and internationally sourced
 
ingredients and are available to all business class passengers flying from the airline’s Doha hub, Hamad International Airport, and selected flights into Doha.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar al-Baker said, “We always strive to provide our customers with authentic and indulgent experiences in the skies. We are delighted to incorporate a vegan main course choice to our on-board menu, offering our passengers yet another lifestyle choice that redefines the expectations from a five-star airline.”
Designed with sustainability and taste at its heart, Qatar Airways’ range of flavourful vegan dishes include smoked moutabel, spiral courgettes and arrabbiata sauce, tofu and spinach tortellini, asian barbecue tofu, noodles, scallions and
 
shiitake, fried tofu with vegetable tajine, cauliflower couscous and kalamata bruschetta, and chickpea flour omelette.
The airline also offers a “wide selection” of special meals to cater to different dietary requirements. Passengers can request a special meal up to 24 hours before their flight. These include young traveller meals, vegetarian or religious meals and medical or health care meals.
Qatar Aircraft Catering Company (QACC), the exclusive catering provider at Hamad International Airport, ensures that all in-flight meals are prepared to the highest quality using the freshest ingredients. Spanning an extraordinary 69,000 square meters, QACC is one of the world’s largest self-contained catering facilities.
Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, the airline has applied necessary health and safety measures onboard its flights, including in the preparation and serving of food. Business class meals are served covered on a tray instead of a table set up, and a cutlery wrap is offered to passengers as an alternative to individual cutlery service, in an effort to minimise contact between crew and passengers.
Qatar Airways has also introduced single-use menu cards and sealed refreshing wipes. Economy class meals and cutlery are served sealed as usual, and menu cards have been temporarily discontinued.
All social areas onboard the aircraft have been closed adhering to the social distancing measures. For more information about Qatar Airways’ safety measures, visit qatarairways.com/Safety.
Qatar’s national carrier now operates more than 650 weekly flights to more than 90 destinations, providing more flexible travel options to more global destinations than any other airline.
A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by the international air transport rating organisation Skytrax.
