Air India flyers to taste and then order food of their choice

July 07, 2014 18:49 IST

First and business class passengers on Air India will be able to taste and then choose their food, once the national carrier joins the Star Alliance later this week.

Flight caterer TajSATS said it has partnered with Air India to improve the on-board food service on select domestic and international routes.

"The 'Table set-up' has been conceptualised to provide the opportunity to savour tailor-make dishes based on individual tastes and preferences," TajSATS' director for food production Satish Arora said.

Air India formally gets inducted as the 27th member of the global airlines' club, Star Alliance, later this week.

The induction into Star Alliance is expected to improve Air India's connectivity to high-growth economies and give the 26 Star Alliance members access to India's vibrant domestic aviation market.

A passenger would be able to access the destinations offered by the entire Star Alliance network of over 21,980 daily flights to 1,328 airports in 195 countries. All member airlines jointly own 4,338 aircraft which fly over 640 million passengers a year.

Air India would add about 400 daily flights and 35 new destinations in India to the Alliance network, with the biggest growth coming from its home market where it flies to 62 cities.
