Alpha LSG has started catering all Emirates’ flights out of London-Heathrow after being awarded a contract that commenced on 1 March.
The agreement to cater six daily flights out of London-Heathrow to Dubai makes Emirates one of Alpha LSG’s largest customers. The company already services the airline’s regional operation in the UK from London-Gatwick, London-Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow.
Richard Wood, Alpha LSG’s Sales and Marketing Director, says: “From March 1st we will oversee all of Emirates’ UK Catering requirements. This reflects the outstanding relationship we have built with the airline over recent years, thanks to the skill and expertise of our culinary and logistics teams. The addition of Emirates to our portfolio means we now cater seven of the world’s top ten airlines flying out of London-Heathrow.”
Emirates’ will be catered from Alpha LSG’s exclusive Halal Production Kitchen which is the only dedicated Halal catering facility at London-Heathrow.
Around 50,000 meals each week will be supplied to 42 flights on Emirates’ Dubai route, which is serviced by a fleet of A380s.
