Rossiya Airlines to Use Local Products for In-Flight Catering

Rossiya Airlines presented new in-flight catering rations made from domestically produced products. Rossiya Airlines is working to improve service on its flights, paying great attention to the quality and variety of in-flight meals for passengers.

Andrey Ordinov, Deputy General Director for Production of Rossiya Airlines, at the SPbTransportFest-2022 site, presented the carrier’s new in-flight catering rations, which are prepared using only local ingredients.

The concept of a high-quality and varied menu, developed in the workshop of Aeromar JSC, the largest company in Russia producing food for air passengers, is based on the principles of using domestically produced products. The rations presented by Rossiya Airlines contain carefully selected ingredients from suppliers mainly from St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.

The onboard service depends on the chosen class of service, flight duration, departure time and direction. For example, one of the options for a cold snack for business class passengers is a halibut fillet produced by the Severnaya Volna company in the Vsevolozhsk district of the Leningrad region, with light-salted salmon caught in Murmansk and supplied by the FishHouse company from St. Petersburg, fresh cucumber from the city of Volzhsky, Volgograd Region, and arugula leaves grown in the Vsevolozhsky District, Leningrad Region.

For a hot meal, Economy class passengers are offered chicken fillets raised by poultry farmers of the Leningrad company in the Vsevolozhsky district, in tomato sauce with fusilli pasta and a mixture of vegetables from greenhouses in the Leningrad region, as well as assorted bakery products from the Rzhevka-khleb factory from St. Petersburg.

New sanctions on major Russian airlines will prevent them from cashing in on their UK landing slots.
