British Airways revamps its catering for flights departing London Gatwick.

The UK's leading airline, by size and global route network, British Airways has reimagined and improved food offering across its short-haul and long-haul cabins on flights from London Gatwick Airport. 

Now available on all flights, the new catering arrangements mean new menus featuring new dishes and recipes.  The new food has a focus on provenance with the provider, Newrest, working closely with suppliers in the south of England to source the best quality ingredients. It has been introduced in all cabins World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First – as well as Club Europe on short-haul routes. Economy on short-haul won't change as the carrier will still use the low-cost-carrier model  of only having food to buy onboard. 

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said: “This is the latest development in continuously improving our catering. We’re incredibly proud of this new offering, and we hope our customers enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed developing it.”

Menus vary based on route and cabin, samples include:
