Air Canada has announced a major overhaul of its inflight dining service, with the addition of dozens of new dishes and more pre-order options for its premium customers.

According to a press statement by the Canadian national airline, it is introducing more than 100 new rotating seasonal dishes, alongside new snacks and drinks.

The statement adds that for the economy class passengers, new dishes include red Thai chicken and rice, and chicken cacciatore with roast potatoes and bell peppers. On longer flights where a hot breakfast is served there will be the option of pancakes and Canadian maple syrup, while passengers on services from Europe will be offered Monty’s Bakehouse pastries including coconut chicken and potato sour cream and chive.

Meanwhile premium class customers travelling on international flights in Air Canada’s Signature Class will see new options including chicken thigh with mandi rice and Emirati bzar sauce, roasted salmon in teriyaki sauce with Shandong noodles, and a Middle Eastern mezze plate appetizer.

Premium passengers will also benefit from extended pre-order options, with the rollout of the service on flights within North America, and the option to pre-select the second meal choice on international services later this year.

Other changes include new Champagnes selected by sommelier Véronique Rivest, upgraded business class hot meals on flights under two hours within North America and new snack basket options for premium economy and Signature Class customers including Sweet Sixteen candy mix, Chomps grass-fed beef jerky, and Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Squares.

Finally Air Canada’s paid-for Bistro menu is rolling out new choices including a peppercorn roast beef sandwich, cheeseburger sliders, and new vegan options including Mediterranean hummus wraps.

“We are incredibly proud to introduce these delicious new dining options, featuring homegrown Canadian products and ingredients reflecting the diversity of Canada and our customers’ tastes and preferences. The thought and care we’ve brought to elevating our menus, and bringing fresh new flavours for all, is one of the many ways we’re investing in every aspect of our customers’ journey to make travel even better,” says Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Loyalty and Product, Air Canada.

Meanwhile, Air Canada says it is set to boost services to London and Manchester this summer, with Toronto-London increasing to four-times-daily from April to October, and Toronto-Manchester increasing to six flights per week from June to September.
