Turkish Airlines introduces traditional tableware designs
Turkish Do & Co, the airline’s caterer helped design the service look for the airline’s Business, Comfort and Economy cabins.
“The new materials have a modern and elegant design, reflecting Turkish culture. Inspired by the Ottoman and Seljuq motifs,” said a November 7 release from Turkish Airlines. “These new components have been designed according to new trends and are especially adapted to the special needs of onboard use.”
“We have prepared many surprises for our passengers. No longer will special days require a visit to a fine restaurant because that same experience will be available if you travel in the Business Class cabin of Turkish Airlines,” said Turkish Do & Co's CEO Attila Doğudan. “After the dinner, you will be able to drink your freshly brewed tea from the ‘samovar,’ in the cups specially designed for our passengers.”
Doğudan added that in conjunction with the carefully chosen tastes from Turkish and World cuisine, there would be a new emphasis on spices that play a distinctive role in Turkish cuisine.
Starting this month, the new concept is being used on flights to New York, Guangzhou, Jakarta, Cape Town, Buenos Aires, Sao Paolo, Hong Kong, Washington D.C., Seoul, Johannesburg, Osaka, Kuala Lumpur, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Chicago, Shanghai, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, Toronto, and Houston.
