CLARK FREEPORT – Philippines AirAsia has unveiled its latest in-flight offerings featuring the best of Asean flavors, savory snacks, healthy food selections, variety of beverages, and special gift items and merchandise.
The airline which has been voted the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier for nine straight years formally introduced “Santan inflight menu and catalogue” at a press event held in Bohol in partnership with Amorita Resort.
AirAsia Philippines’ Head of Ancillary Karlo Sanchez said they are delighted to offer variety and only the best meals from across the Asean region including the Filipino Adobo.
“These hotmeals are available on all AirAsia flights across our extensive network in the whole of Asean, extending as far as India, China, Australia, Japan and United States,” Sanchez said.
Among those featured signature dishes are Thai Green Curry with Rice, an aromatic chicken curry infused with authentic Thai spices served with fragrant white rice, Malaysia’s Nasi Lemak, Singapore’s Chicken Rice, and the Philippine’s Chicken Adobo.
AirAsia’s Santan menu is also adding a new dish for pasta lovers with Chicken Lasagne now available onboard and via online pre-booking. Chicken Lasagne is a tantalizing blend of classic creamy cheese and chicken with assorted vegetables adding a refreshing taste.
“Gourmet experience onboard doesn’t have to be expensive and as an added value for our guests, we are keeping our pricing at affordable levels and at the same time maintaining the high quality and flavour of all our meals,” Sanchez said.
Combo meals or hot meals with choice of drinks are priced at P180 only and to enjoy greater savings.
AirAsia encourages guests to pre-book their meals or to purchase their meals in advance online. Guests who pre-book will be assured of meal availability and will enjoy priority meal service onboard.
AirAsia won the World's Leading Inflight Service title at the World Travel Awards Grand Finals in December 2016, and was also honoured with the Catering Innovation of the Year award by Onboard Hospitality earlier last year.
Guests, media, and bloggers took part in a Santan food tasting session and interactive activities during the formal launch in Amorita Resort. AirAsia will also host food tasting sessions in select BPO offices and malls in Metro Manila.
