Air Canada is partnering with Montreal-based Chef Jérôme Ferrer, who will design meals for the airline’s Premium Economy and Economy Class customers on all flights departing Canada for Europe and Asia, as well as Australia and South America once these flights resume.
Chef Ferrer joins fellow Canadian Chefs David Hawksworth, Antonio Park and Vikram Vij, whose meals will be offered as more Air Canada flights resume.
Andrew Yiu, Vice-President – Product at Air Canada commented: “Chef Ferrer is known for his sustainable, imaginative, global yet Canadian approach to food, and he becomes the fourth member of Air Canada’s panel of distinguished Canadian culinary talent. We look forward to presenting his unique, innovative creations to customers travelling in Premium Economy and Economy Class on our international flights departing Canada. We are the first North American airline to partner with a celebrated chef to curate complimentary meals in Economy Class, affirming our ongoing commitment to customer service excellence and continuous investment in all of our products and services.”
For the first time, chef-designed meals by Chef Park will also be introduced in Business Class – North America:
Chef David Hawksworth’s Canadian-themed dishes will be showcased in Signature Class on flights to Europe and Israel, as well as to Australia when those flights resume.
Chef Antonio Park’s meals will be featured in Signature Class on flights to Asia and South America, once those flights resume, and in Signature Class and Business Class within North America.
Chef Jerome Ferrer’s meals will be presented in Premium Economy and Economy Class on international flights departing Canada.
Chef Vikram Vij’s creations will be featured on flights to India when those flights are able to resume.
Limited in-flight food options in Economy Class onboard North American flights greater than two hours will be re-introduced on a pre-order basis.
All meals onboard Air Canada’s flights will be presented in a custom paper box in accordance with current service protocols streamlining interactions. Air Canada is working closely with suppliers to ensure the most environmentally friendly packaging is used whenever possible. Customers will also be offered an expanded selection of alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks adapted by cabin and route.
Menu details for all cabins and flights are available at aircanada.com and via the Air Canada App early August.
