When you’re going on a holiday, the normal British thing to do is go to Wetherspoons at the airport, and then eat the awful plane food while you’re en route.
However, budget airline Jet2 has thrown in a complete game-changer with their latest announcement – they’re now offering Nando’s meals onboard their flights. Anyone else want to book right now?!
They’ve introduced Nando’s Peri-Peri Flight Bites – which are two snacks infused with its Southern African Peri-Peri spice.
The first is a dip and dunk ‘Nando’s Box’, which includes houmous, Peri-Peri drizzle and salted pita chips. Oh my God.
The other option is for customers to “take their taste buds on a trip with Nando’s Half-popped Corn”, which they have described as “a mild and delicious snacking option where fluffy popcorn meets crunchy corn”.
A spokesperson for Jet2.com said: “To give customers even more reason to feel sky-high with excitement this summer, Nando’s vouchers can also be found in selected Nando’s boxes onboard, entitling one person to a free Nando’s meal.
“The new in-flight menu is Jet2.com’s biggest and best yet, with a number of new additions to give customers more choice and variety than ever.
“Following the introduction of its first ever in-flight vegan meal earlier this year, the warming and hearty penne arrabbiata pasta dish, the company has added the vegan and gluten free “Gnaw” chocolate bar, with Nando’s Half-popped Corn also suitable for vegans.”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, and our new favourite person ever, said the announcement was bound to ‘delight’ customers.
He said: “The addition of these two fantastic snacking options give our customers even more great choice than ever, and mean that we are the first UK airline to offer Nando’s products on our in-flight menu.
“We have already made a number of exciting changes to our menu this year, and we are sure this brand new menu will delight customers even more.”
He added: “We pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service in every area, which was recognised at the recent TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for airlines where we won five awards, and we can’t wait for our customers to try the exciting choice on this new menu.”
