The national flag carrier announced Thursday that Turkish Airlines implemented two new projects to provide better service for intercontinental business class passengers.
According to a statement written by the airline read; “Awarded many times for its in-flight catering services, Turkish Airlines has carried its service a step further and implemented a new project enabling business class passengers to choose their meals before the flight.”
The country’s national flag carrier said “Meal selection before flight” service will be available in several intercontinental flights departing from Istanbul to global destinations including Atlanta, Boston, Cape Town, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, New York etc.
It also stated that “Business class passengers can view the meal details and visuals of the main dishes and make their choices on the webpage and/or mobile application.”
The statement also added that the service enables the passengers to choose the meal within the period starting from one week before flight date until the last 48 hours. The airline named the other project as “dine on demand service”, allowing its business class passengers in intercontinental flights to dine at any time they wish during the flight.
The airline said; “Turkish Airlines passengers will have the opportunity to experience a more flexible flight by determining the time they want to rest and dine.”
