Qatar Airways has introduced its first range of fully vegan dishes to its à la carte menu for business class passengers on all flights.
In a bid to cater to the increasing demand for plant-based food, while simultaneously elevating passengers’ culinary experience, the newly crafted vegan dishes use only the freshest locally and internationally sourced ingredients.
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.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker commented: “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.”
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.
