PaxEx: Qatar Airways Brings Locally-Smoked Salmon Onboard
A Qatar-based company is using traditional Scandinavian methods to expertly smoke fresh Norwegian salmon, which is now being served on board Qatar Airways flights.
Customers flying in the airline’s First Class and Business Class cabins can choose from exquisitely presented locally-smoked salmon dishes as part of Qatar Airways’ bespoke à la carte dine-on-demand menu.
The expertly crafted dishes include Pre-Sliced Smoked Salmon, Tender-Loin Smoked Salmon and Chilled Salmon Gravlax, in addition to an Atlantic Salmon Fillet option.
More than 70,000 smoked salmon dishes a month are carefully prepared and served on board Qatar Airways flights. The locally-produced dishes are sourced from Doha-based company Ocean Fish, one of the region’s premier seafood producers and the largest supplier of smoked salmon in the Middle East.
Ocean Fish uses fresh Norwegian salmon, flown on board Qatar Airways flights direct from Oslo to Doha, which is immediately transferred to the airline’s impressive chilled cargo facility by specialized temperature-controlled vehicles. Once delivered to Ocean Fish’s new Doha premises, the process to produce locally-smoked salmon begins.
This is just the latest initiative taken by the airline to further enhance its renowned five-star service. Earlier this month, Qatar Airways launched a new Pre-Select Dining menu option, enabling premium passengers to select their menus before their flights.
As well as enjoying a five-star dining experience, premium customers can also be pampered with amenities from world-class brands such as BRIC’S, Nappa Dori, Monte Vibiano and The White Company.
Qatar Airways is launching a host exciting new destinations around the world between now and the end of 2018, including Chiang Mai, Thailand; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and San Francisco, U.S etc.
