Budget flight firm, Jet2.com, has unveiled Nando’s Peri-Peri Flight Bites’, two snacks imbued with its signature Southern African Peri-Peri spice.
Good plane food is difficult to come across and quite honestly when you’re trapped in a metal box 15,000 feet in the air, it’s not like you have many options other than to hand over your $12, take the sweaty salami sandwich and get your grub on. Well, days as such could be long gone after Jet2.com released it will be the first airline in the UK to serve on its flights goodies from pop street favorite Nando’s. The first item is a dip and dunk ‘Nando’s Box’, which includes salted pita chips, Peri-Peri drizzle and humus.
However if that doesn’t quite float your hungry boat, the Leeds-based airline claims customers can “take their taste buds on a trip with Nando’s Half-popped Corn”, which has been detailed as “a mild and delicious snacking option where fluffy popcorn meets crunchy corn”. Via a statement, the airline stated it hoped the latest additions would stimulate passengers. A Jet2.com spokesperson said: “To give customers even more reason to feel sky-high with excitement this summer, Nando’s vouchers can also be found in selected Nando’s boxes onboard, entitling one person to a free Nando’s meal. The new in-flight menu is Jet2.com’s biggest and best yet, with a number of new additions to give customers more choice and variety than ever. Following the introduction of its first ever in-flight vegan meal earlier this year, the warming and hearty penne arrabbiata pasta dish, the company has added the vegan and gluten free ‘Gnaw’ chocolate bar, with Nando’s Half-popped Corn also suitable for vegans.”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, added: “The addition of these two fantastic snacking options give our customers even more great choice than ever, and mean that we are the first UK airline to offer Nando’s products on our in-flight menu. We have already made a number of exciting changes to our menu this year, and we are sure this brand new menu will delight customers even more. We pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service in every area, which was recognized at the recent TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for airlines where we won five awards, and we can’t wait for our customers to try the exciting choice on this new menu.”
