Global Airlines has announced that Laurent Perrier champagne will be the premier champagne to be served on board all of the carrier’s transatlantic flights.
Global Airlines, which was launched earlier this year and is led by CEO James Asquith, began its aircraft acquisition programme with one secured Airbus A380 and says more of the aircraft type are to follow in summer 2023. It plans to start operating flights in 2024.
