The airline has listened to its guests who told it they are looking for more plant-based menu options when travelling. Alaska’s new vegan option called the “Soy Meets World,” is a vegan salad developed in partnership with Evergreens, a West Coast-based company that makes gourmet, freshly chopped salads.
Alaska Airlines has one of the most comprehensive domestic food and beverage programs in the industry. The carrier offers three meal options in First Class, including its Signature Fruit & Cheese on flights as short as 550 miles. It also offers ample food options in Premium Class and Main Cabin, which include up to four fresh options on flights over 1,100 miles and up to five snack items on flights over 223 miles, such as the Mediterranean Tapas Pack (vegan and gluten-free).
Now through October, guests can enjoy fresh summer flavours, including berries, summer squash, corn, citrus and tomatoes. To see all of the airline’s food and beverage offerings, visit alaskaair.com.
Travellers can enjoy fresh ingredients inspired by the West Coast, from snacks to freshly prepared meals, by pre-ordering your favourites ahead of their flight using the reservation feature on the airline’s app or on the website. Meal orders can be made starting 14 days before your flight, and up to 20 hours prior to departure.
Snacks and Picnic packs do not require pre-order and are available on board most flights over two hours and Mileage Plan members can store a method of payment in their Mileage Plan account for touch-free inflight purchases, including food and beverages.
“We’re thrilled to offer our guests more healthy and nutritious choices when they fly with us,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products. “We built our menu thoughtfully to offer more plant-based, vegan and gluten-free options, which include a range of fresh, bright flavours inspired by the West Coast and ingredients that are authentically healthy by nature such as roasted broccoli, crisp romaine and baby lettuce greens, quinoa, fresh fruit and more.”
