Emirates is poised to launch a range of novel vegan culinary offerings both on its aircraft and in lounges later this year. This initiative is in response to a notable 40% surge in customer requests for plant-based meals.
The airline witnessed a notable uptick in the provision of plant-based meals, surpassing 450,000 servings in 2023, marking an increase from 280,000 in the preceding year. The most substantial rise in vegan meal consumption was observed within the Economy Class segment.
The upcoming menu additions will complement the existing array of over 300 vegan recipes available across 140 destinations. These additions will showcase a diverse selection, incorporating options from globally recognized brands such as Beyond Meat, Pantai, Linnolat, and others.
