South African Airways (SAA) has teamed up with a new on-board catering partner, DO & CO Event and Airline Catering, and has announced a new menu in both Business and Economy cabins on all flights from Heathrow to Johannesburg.
Passengers are now offered meals handmade from the freshest, locally sourced ingredients, along with a hand-picked selection of South African wine pairings. Menus will be kept fresh and inspiring with a seasonal quarterly rotation.
New dishes on offer for Business customers include fresh Loch Fyne Scottish Smoked Salmon, Grilled Cod (MSC approved) from the North Atlantic served with saffron velouté, baby carrots and mushy peas, or freshly prepared handmade Truffle Tortellini with grilled artichoke and parmesan. For dessert, there’s a wide choice including Mango Panna Cotta, Avocado Chocolate Mouse and Passion Fruit Tiramisu.
Economy customers are offered meals such as Viennese Paprika Chicken with homemade buttered Spätzle and broccoli or Rigatoni with a Rosemary Sauce, rocket and tomato salad, sprinkled with parmesan, followed by a carrot and banana cake with cheese and crackers.
The carrier, a Star Alliance member, operates the first direct flight of the day from Heathrow to Johannesburg and offers twice daily flights to the destination.
