Airline Adds Vegan Menu to Meet Passengers' Demands

International airline Jetstar now serves falafel, lentil and quinoa salad, and more after receiving frequent requests for vegan food options.

Australia-based airline Jetstar announced this week the addition of a vegan menu to its international flights. The budget airline—a subsidiary of Qantas—is now serving falafel, lentil and quinoa salad, instant vegetable noodles, marinated olives, and cashew-sesame snacks. “The feedback we were getting is that it can sometimes be hard to find vegan-friendly options while traveling,” Jetstar chief commercial officer Catriona Larritt said. “Research has demonstrated that ‘vegan’ was googled more in Australia and New Zealand than anywhere else around the world. It’s obviously of growing interest to our local customer base, and we wanted to respond to these insights.” Jetstar will expand the vegan menu to domestic flights and those to Tasmania starting February 1.
