China Airlines, Taiwan, is preparing their inflight service offering for a pandemic world by continuing to adhere to the regulations issued by Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center. The inflight catering service offered has been adjusted to protect the health and safety of passengers and crew throughout their journey.
From July 6th, the “One Tray hot meals” service will be offered on flights of three hours or more that depart from or arrive at Taipei. A limited beverage service offering beer and fruit juices is available on demand. The “Sandwich box” service will continue to be provided for flights of three hours or less, and only bottled water will be provided in all cabin classes on return flights to all China and Hong Kong routes.
The “One Tray hot meal” will offer a hot meal featuring chicken, and the airline hopes to introduce pork, beef, seafood and vegetarian options for Business Class passengers on flights departing from Taipei in August. In addition, Business Class travellers will be able to select up to four meals online.
For flights that serve “One Tray hot meals”, welcome beverages in Business Class will switch to a bottled all-natural fruit and vegetable juice. The changes aim to protect travellers health through better quarantine practices.
The airline has modified the inflight service in accordance with quarantine principles, which includes moving to single-use disposable products.
The policy on China Airlines adopted in all cabin classes includes
- Single meal tray
- Single main course
- No table cloth
- No beverage menu
