SAUDIA introduces new three-course Economy Class meals

By Rachel Debling

SAUDIA's Paris, London and Manchester routes are the first to introduce a new trayless Economy Class (Guest Class) menu inspired by international and signature Middle Eastern dishes.

Since its initial roll-out in April, more than 200,000 guests have been served the new series of meals. A new Business and First Class dining service is also in the works, according to an August 25 press release from the airline.

"Bistro by SAUDIA," the new Economy Class menu, is a restaurant-style service with three courses: an appetizer, main course and dessert. The selection will be rolled out across SAUDIA's fleet, with new routes to receive the concept being announced soon.

Snacks will also be provided to Economy passengers on these routes and, for the first time ever, they will be offered traditional Arabic coffee and dates.

The new menus, which were created with the help of chefs from Saudi Arabia, London and Paris, will include options like Greek yogurt with dried fruit; poached pears in almond custard; egg shakshouka, spinach ricotta frittata, caprese lasagna, chocolate date ganache; guava and mango juice; pure mint tea, and more.

SAUDIA Vice President Corporate Communications, Fahad Bahdailah, commented: “Throughout the airline’s transformation journey since the July 2015 launch of the SV Transformation Plan 2020, our continued focus has been on providing a guest experience that is memorable, personable and comfortable. Each new initiative introduced on board is a reflection of SAUDIA’s commitment to ensuring every guest has a pleasant journey.

“SAUDIA has introduced a range of both metropolitan and traditional dining options on board, delivered with a unique flair and service touch, reflecting the essence of Saudi hospitality. Bistro by SAUDIA is aligned with the global traveler; it is a service that is focused on choice, flexibility and an enjoyable dining experience.”
