Thomas Cook Airlines

Charter airlines might not count as business travel operators but business travellers certainly use them, if only for their own family holiday.

Just like the scheduled airlines the quality of the in-flight arrangements has improved dramatically over the last few years with Thomas Cook Airlines (created in 2003) last year recruiting TV chef James Martin to oversee the on-board catering.

“My in-flight dishes reflect the passion I have for the food I create for my own restaurants, and feedback tells me they’re going down a treat, whether people are going off on holiday or returning home”, said James.

Starting from just £6 per meal, the latest in-flight menu features well-loved, traditional dishes such as slow braised beef with bourbon glaze and baby baked potatoes, breaded chicken goujons with triple cooked chips and James’ own ketchup on the children’s menu, a twice-baked cheese soufflé with roasted leeks as one of the vegetarian options and classic treacle sponge pudding and custard for dessert.

Passengers can now book in-flight dining for inbound flights even if they did not order one for their outbound flight through their Thomas Cook or Airtours holiday representative in resort.  With some holidays the meal is included. www.thomascook.com/flights
