Qatar Airways launches new Quisine menu for Australian flights

September 16, 2019 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Qatar Airways has announced its new Quisine onboard dining experience is now available for Economy Class passengers travelling to and from Australia.

The new dining experience will see portion sizes increase by 20 per cent for appetisers, 25% for main courses, and a generous 50 per cent increase for desserts. To begin their journey, travellers will receive redesigned menu cards with a service timeline on all long-haul and ultra-long-haul flights, ensuring passengers can plan their journey and meal times. A pre-dinner drinks option is now served on flights of more than five hours, with sparkling wine and cocktail snacks available prior to the main meal being served.

The new Quisine menu has a greater focus on the use of local, fresh and healthy ingredients that are in season. Individually wrapped artisanal warm bread infused with olive oil will also be introduced, while a special movie snack selection with popcorn, chocolate, potato chips and more are added to compliment Qatar Airways’ award-winning inflight entertainment for long-haul flights.

Young travelers are also well-taken care of as kids’ meals are available upon booking. The Qatar Airways kids’ meals are a culmination of kids’ favourites, chosen by 50 children from 15 nationalities in a study group with the catering team. Each Qatar Airways kids’ meal features a delectable selection of healthy juices, snacks and fruits packed in an exciting box and complete with a surprise toy to keep young flyers happy.

As part of Qatar Airways’ commitment to the environment, there has been a focus on reducing single-use plastics. With the introduction of Quisine, there is an 80 per cent increase in recyclable and biodegradable products being used. Also, 80 per cent of the tray items comply with the ban on single-use plastics.

Qatar Airways Senior Manager for Australasia, Adam Radwanski, said: “Our new onboard dining experience has been designed to further enhance our Economy Class. We know Australians love their food, and we’re confident our larger portions packed with seasonal fresh produce and a pre-dinner drinks will be a popular addition to the in-flight service.”

Quisine was first announced in April and has been launched with a phased introduction across the Qatar Airways network.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of more than 250 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA) to more than 160 destinations worldwide. The airline has recently launched an array of exciting new destinations, namely Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Malta; Davao, Philippines; Lisbon, Portugal; and Mogadishu, Somalia. The airline will add Langkawi, Malaysia and Gaborone, Botswana to its extensive route network in October 2019.

Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘Best Business Class Seat’, in recognition of its ground-breaking Business Class experience, Qsuite. Qatar Airways is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted “Skytrax Airline of the Year” title, which is recognised as the pinnacle of excellence in the airline industry, five times.
