Qatar ups Economy food offer

A new Economy Class on-board experience called ‘Quisine’ has been unveiled by Qatar Airways in what the airline says is a move “to elevate further customers’ dining experience when they travel”.

Passengers are now given redesigned menus with a service timeline on long-haul and ultra-long-haul flights so they can plan when they eat. Pre-dinner drinks and snacks are also being served on flights of more than 5hr.

Food portions have increased by 25-50% with a greater focus on the use of local seasonal fresh and healthy ingredients. Meals also feature individually wrapped warm artisan bread and individual bottles of water. Mid-flight film snacks include cheese and crackers, chocolate, crisps and popcorn from gourmet brand 4700BC.

‘Quisine’ is being launched with a phased introduction across the airline’s network, beginning with flights to and from Brussels, Cardiff, Gothenburg, Moscow and St Petersburg.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We have crafted our new dining and service experience to ensure we are offering our passengers a premium service in Economy Class.”

The airline is also adding a number of new destinations to its route network this year including Izmir, Rabat, Malta, Davao, Lisbon, Mogadishu and Langkawi.
