Jet2.com launches pre-order service for vegan and gluten-free meals


The new in-flight meals will be available to order from 29 July and will be onboard flights from 2 August.

Jet2.com has introduced two gluten-free meals and two vegan options to its selection of pre-ordered meals, giving passengers more choice.

According to the airline, the initiative is a direct response to demand from customers.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Customer feedback shows that there is strong demand for vegan and gluten-free options, so we are delighted to be introducing these four delicious meals, giving customers more choice on our award-winning airline. We are always looking at ways in which we can develop our offering and VIP customer experience, and we are sure that these new pre-ordered meals will be just as popular as the exciting in-flight menu changes that we have already announced this year.”

The Gluten Free Roast Chicken Dinner features a traditional roast chicken breast with grilled potatoes and vegetables, served with a rich gluten-free gravy. The All-Day Gluten Free Breakfast is topped with grilled bacon, scrambled egg, rosti potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms in a tomato sauce.

Due to demand from customers who have removed animal products from their diet, the airlines is also introducing two exciting new vegan meals, including an All-Day Vegan Breakfast featuring a grilled vegan sausage, rosti potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms in a rich tomato sauce, as well as a Vegan Moroccan Vegetable Tagine served with couscous.

The new in-flight meals will be available to order from 29 July and will be onboard on flights from 2 August. They can be purchased when booking with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays or can be ordered post-booking.

Jet2.com has launched several initiatives to give customers more choice. In January, the airline added its first ever vegan option to its inflight menu, with the introduction of Penne Arrabbiata pasta dish, while in May the airline introduced two Nando’s snacks to its new inflight menu, making it the first UK airline to offer the popular South African chain’s dishes onboard.
