British airline company Jet2.com has introduced two gluten-free meals and two vegan options to its selection of pre-ordered meals.
Jet2 said that in direct response to demand from customers, the company has added two gluten-free options to give customers increased choice of meals when flying with the airline. The Gluten Free Roast Chicken Dinner includes a traditional roast chicken breast with grilled potatoes and vegetables, served with a gluten-free gravy. The All-Day Gluten Free Breakfast is topped with grilled bacon, scrambled egg, rosti potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms in a tomato sauce.
In addition, following demand from customers who have removed animal products from their diet, Jet2 has introduced two new vegan meals, including an All-Day Vegan Breakfast featuring a grilled vegan sausage, rosti potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms in a tomato sauce, as well as a Vegan Moroccan Vegetable Tagine served with couscous.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: ‘Customer feedback shows that there is strong demand for vegan and gluten-free options, so we are delighted to be introducing these four delicious meals, giving customers more choice on our award-winning airline. We are always looking at ways in which we can develop our offering and VIP customer experience, and we are sure that these new pre-ordered meals will be just as popular as the exciting in-flight menu changes that we have already announced this year.’
The airline has introduced several culinary announcements this year, giving customers a wider range of in-flight food choice. In January, Jet2 added its first ever vegan option to its in-flight menu, with the introduction of a Penne Arrabbiata pasta dish, and in May the airline introduced two Nando’s snacks to its new in-flight menu – the first UK airline to introduce Nando’s onboard.
The new in-flight meals will be onboard flights starting today, August 2. They can be purchased when booking with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays or can be ordered post-booking.
