Dutch airline Transavia, part of the Air France-KLM holding, has signed a contract with the online food ordering company Just Eat.
This will allow the introduction of an on-board delivery service that allows passengers to order meals for their flight.
Customers can place an order on the Just Eat platform no later than one hour before departure. Meals are prepared by the Dutch catering company iFleat. There are ten options to choose from, including vegan salads, sushi and Indonesian rendang. The rations are delivered directly on board, after which the flight attendants serve the passengers.
The pilot program was developed in cooperation with Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The service is available on four flights from Amsterdam to destinations in Greece, Portugal and Italy. It is planned to expand it to the airports of Rotterdam, The Hague and Eindhoven.
“It is important to continue to innovate and improve our customer service, especially during these difficult times,” said Transavia CEO Marcel de Neuer. "We are confident in the great prospects of this wonderful concept and we hope to develop it."
