In-Flight Dining - How Private Aircraft Catering Works


While commercial airlines continue to cut back on food and beverage options available to passengers, private aircraft travelers have numerous options for meals and snacks aboard their flight. Catering options vary by city and aircraft type, but in most cases, passengers' needs and requests are met. The most popular items are fresh sliced fruit plates, cheese and crackers, and cut vegetable trays, because they are convenient and lighter. But we receive and accommodate requests as varied as filet mignon and lobster, and always take into account dietary restrictions, special diets, and food allergies.

Did you know that private aircraft firms are also able to get specific meals from restaurants? Meals are ordered from these restaurants, brought to the catering facilities where they are kept cold and repackaged until delivered directly to the aircraft. While Amaka Global Airways offers an entrée, side item, and choice of beer and wine to each passenger per flight, we can work with clients to make sure their requests are accommodated.

Standard menus are provided to our passengers to order in advance, and include some of the more popular meals ordered. Quarterly publications to owners often feature new and popular meal options as well. In addition, passengers can request specific meals, or even specific caterers if they have a preference. Amaka Global Airways offers a catering menu to new clients with some of the most popular standard items, but can also accommodate special requests – including things like pizza from a client's favorite pizza shop. While some of the small aircraft do not have warming equipment, if a passenger requests a warm meal it can often be heated prior to the flight. Our client services team works with clients to make sure they are aware of limitations. Special occasions are also celebrated on board private aircraft. Flowers, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and cakes are just a few of the options available for celebrations.

For example, we also keeps track of special occasions and often provides these items as a surprise to owners. We also offers children's menus and often provides children activity packs if kids will be on board. We never wants to say no to a request and we will do all we can to accommodate all preferences. This extends beyond food and beverage requests - the catering department has also helped clients procure dog carriers, DVD players, car seats, and other non-food items. For those who fly with their pets, treats and food can also be provided. Contact us for advice on a specific inflight menu, or pricing on your next charter flight.
