Virgin Atlantic, Donal Skehan partner to reinvent airline dining

Virgin Atlantic has announced it has partnered with Donal Skehan to debut “dine with Donal” dishes in the airline´s Upper Class cabins and airport Clubhouses, followed by Premium and Economy cabins next year, the company said.

Virgin Atlantic has unveiled a partnership with award winning food writer & TV host Donal Skehan to reinvent the dining experience at 38,000 ft.

Donal Skehan has been working with Virgin Atlantic for 12 months to develop a new approach to in-flight dining. This includes a range of dishes inspired by global destinations and focuses on sustainable, fresh ingredients which bring restaurant standard food to the skies.

The new menu items feature sustainably sourced fish, meat and vegetables – building on Virgin Atlantic´s industry leading sustainability work. The British airline has worked in partnership with the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) to introduce the world´s first framework to address the challenges of sustainable inflight catering such as: Fair Farming, Sustainable Fish & Seafood, Deforestation & Biodiversity, Animal Welfare, Transparency and Waste.
