Etihad Airways to introduce organic in-flight dining for First-class passengers

Andrea Divirgilio / March 20, 2012

Etihad Airways, which happens to be one of the most luxurious airlines the world over, for its luxurious amenity offerings, has taken yet another step to make its first-class passenger travel more royal. For the first time, the gourmet food served inside the aircraft will be created from fresh organic ingredients, grown by the Abu Dhabi Organics Farm, the airline company’s latest partner. Whether it’s the eggs, honey, or even the lettuce, all food served within the first class cabins of the Etihad Airways flights, will be acquired fresh from the organic farm, meant to please the most discerning customers, who have in the past demanded a more fresh lot of food to be served to them. Guess paying a premium price for your tickets, does have a few benefits after all!

For those that may have travelled in the airline, or have known Etihad Airways, would be aware of the Mezaoon Grille menu on offer, which feature numerous restaurant-like meals. This new partnership between the Arabian airline, and the Abu Dhabi based firm, will actually bring in some further modifications to the menu card, which is meant to offer even more healthy ingredients. As chefs would testify, it would perhaps increase the nutrient value and would certainly suit the tongue better, as the ingredients have an organic origin. The eventual aim however would be that all possible ingredients will be picked fresh from the farm, directly before the flights taking off, or more simply use the most fresh possible organic farm produce on offer.

Having more than 55 hectares of land, where chemical free food is grown, the supply chain for first class flights shall now depend on the Abu Dhabi Organics Farm, which just might give the airline company an edge over its competitors. Studies show that Etihad is currently one of the first to include this as a part of their offering, which will eventually be given to all variety of passengers on board.
