Air India has been on a journey to reinvent itself—modernising its fleet, adding more destinations, and also redefining the entire consumer experience for its travellers.

In recent times, inflight dining has assumed a bigger role with the promise of an appealing and hot meal. Over the last year, the legacy airline has also curated menus that feature an assortment of gourmet meals, appetisers and desserts. Indian cuisine is infused with contemporary elements, reflecting current global trends, in the dishes selected for domestic routes.

In addition, from April 1, the airline’s international menus (exiting India) have been updated based on feedback from its team members and frequent flyers. There are thoughtful vegan options, new main and light meals, decadent desserts and a new bar menu, offering a fine wine list.

As the industry evolves, Air India is poised to offer a whole new range of benefits, programmes, and destinations.
