FLYING FOOD – WHICH DELICACIES APPEAR IN THE AIR Wednesday 12 December 2007 PDF Print Cheapflights.co.uk, the UK’s leading flight price comparison site, has produced a tips page for travellers who need to know which airlines cater for their special dietary requirements. The tips page, soon to be joining other travel tips on the website, gives the low down on which airlines provide for everyone from vegans to dieters. Provided notice is given, in most cases 24 hours, many airlines can cater for passengers’ needs and some for special occasions; Thomsonfly, Emirates and XL will provide champagne for any sky-high celebrations. Vegetarian, vegan meals and meals for diabetics are available on nearly all of the 12 airlines researched. Singapore Airlines provides the longest, and most admirable list of special meals with an impressive 14 different categories: Kosher, Muslim, Hindu, vegetarian, diabetic, fat-free, gluten-free, low sodium, low calorie, non-carbohydrate, non-lactose, seafood, oriental, and Japanese. When travelling on a low-cost carrier such as Ryanair or easyJet, don’t forget to pack your own meal to suit your dietary needs as it may be hard to find food to meet your requirements from their set menus. For information on pricing of standard airline meals, visit www.cheapflights.co.uk/travel-tips/airline-extras.html Francesca Ecsery, General Manager of Cheapflights.co.uk, comments: “Embarking on a flight, especially those of the long-haul variety, often means dining at 30,000 feet. We hope this information will assist the growing number of travellers who have special dietary needs by highlighting which airlines can cater specifically to their diet”. - Ends - Notes to Editors: Cheapflights Ltd.
