Vueling expands its onboard menu with more vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options
The menu includes 12 new options to better accommodate customers’ culinary preferences.
The airline offers customers the opportunity to donate to Save The Children with every purchase they make on board.
The Shop on Board catalogue, as well as its range of exclusive gastronomic products, is also expanding, from 8 to 28 pages.
London, 17 November, 2022.- Upholding its commitment to customer experience and quality of food available on board, Vueling, part of IAG, is introducing a new and updated menu for the winter season with a larger range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free products, as well as expanding its Shop on Board catalogue.
The new menu responds to calls from coeliacs to make a varied selection of gluten-free products available. For customers suffering with coeliac disease, for example, new gluten-free options include beer, almonds, chicken noodles, jellybeans, chocolate brownies and Spanish omelette.
For vegan or vegetarian customers, the airline has added the Vegan Box, with black olive tapenade, houmous, breadsticks, caramelised pecan walnuts, and the vegetarian wrap, with Cajun mayo sauce, white rice, red beans, corn, red cabbage and cheddar cheese, both as new alternatives to its conventional menu.
Vueling is also bringing a new range of exclusive products to its menu, made up of three new options: a Ramón Bilbao D.O. Rioja red wine, a savoury egg and cheese muffin and banana bread. Together with the increase to its Shop On Board products, 12 new culinary options have been added to the Vueling menu in total, expanding the airline’s catalogue to 28 pages, compared to the current 8.
For more social and sustainable onboard purchases
In addition to expanding its culinary offer, Vueling is giving customers the opportunity to donate to Save The Children with every purchase they make on board. All donations will go towards the NGO global emergency fund, which fights to save the lives of thousands of children.
All this comes as part of Vueling’s latest sustainability initiatives, focused on introducing eco-friendly materials into its cabin packaging and providing ways to help customers reduce their use of single-use packaging on board. To this end, Vueling has successfully eliminated the use of more than 1,276 tonnes of plastic since 2021, and a total of 443 tonnes in 2022.
Vueling, a company belonging to the IAG, is a key player in connections in Spain, the largest domestic market in Europe, and contributes to the economic and tourism development in the region. Vueling has carried out numerous initiatives in recent years with the main objective of becoming more sustainable. Its sustainability plan includes strategies to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, waste management and noise reduction.
Among the latest actions are the implementation of segregation processes on aircraft with the aim of recycling 100% of the waste on board, or the possibility for its passengers to make a small contribution, on a voluntary basis, so that on the day of their flight, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is supplied through collaboration with Avikor.
