In-flight Catering

    In-flight Catering

    Russia is expected to experience heavy traffic and an uptick of service requests, including in-flight catering. Due to the increase of such requests, a minimum of 48 to 72 hours lead time is recommended for all orders, especially when there are requests for food items that may be difficult to source in the region. Items such as availability of dry ice will vary by location. Also, newspapers in English will likely not be widely available.

    For operations throughout the region for the 2018 Russia World Cup, it’s recommended that operators travel with extra packaging and supplies such as foil, coolers, reusable gel-packs, dry stores and service equipment to supplement catering procured.

    Air Culinaire Worldwide® is able to provide in-flight catering at all locations with the exception of Ramnenskoye (UUBW) and Kaliningrad (UMKK).
