It’s a Gourmair experience thanks to AirAsia’s new in-flight dining brand

High up in the sky, 36,000 ft. to be precise; AirAsia has presented its customers with a unique gourmet experience in the form of Gourmair.

The new Gourmair menu features a diverse selection of hot meals with international and regional favourites, innovative desserts and healthy options. With over 21 regional and international options, it’s a diverse and exclusive range of hot meals in domestic skies.

The offerings on the menu are neatly separated into distinct sections including MasterChef Specials, World’s Finest, Regional Favourites, All-Day Breakfast, Healthy and Diabetic options, Seasonal Fruits, Lite Bites (Sandwiches and Rolls) and Delectable Desserts.

In keeping with exploring both places and cuisines, Gourmair blends Indian regional favourites and popular international dishes with innovative fusion food. Each meal is prepared with the highest standards of hygiene and quality, an ethos of environmental and social responsibility, and a desire to set new standards in dining.

AirAisa India’s latest menu has been created in collaboration with the chefs of TajSATS, a joint venture between the Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) & SATS Limited. Currently, they’re catering across the flight’s four hubs – Bengaluru, Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai.

Gourmair’s exciting new menu features signature exclusives like a marinated herb grilled fish fillet with French velouté sauce, served with creamy mashed potato and sautéed vegetables. For brekkie lovers, there’s an All-Day Breakfast cheddar and chives omelette with potato rosti, braised baked beans and hara bhara kebab. 

The MasterChef Specials section is curated exclusively for AirAsia India by MasterChef Kirti Bhoutika. It takes care of vegan needs even in the air with the Vegan Moilee MasterCurry, a unique take on the famous Kerala-style moilee curry prepared with tofu, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini, served with raw mango and coconut rice. On the sweet end of things, there’s an innovative fusion dessert – the Shôndesh Tiramisu, with hints of espresso and dark chocolate, layered with mascarpone cheese. Also featured on the innovative experimental list is the Mysore Pak Cheesecake, continuing the trend of amalgamating modern desserts with classic Indian sweet recipes. 

Evidently, the Gourmair menu isn’t kidding around when it comes to providing flyers with a wide range of options. From vegetarian, pescetarian, poultry, and eggetarian to vegan, Jain,  and diabetic-friendly options, AirAsia has got you covered.

Commenting on the launch, Siddhartha Butalia, Chief Marketing Officer, AirAsia India says, “Our new dining brand and in-flight menu ‘Gourmair’ has been curated as a tour de force for the tastebuds. Catering to diverse culinary preferences and palates, Gourmair encourages diners to begin their travel experience in the sky and discover the diversity of cuisines from different cultures as they fly. Having convection ovens in all our flights enables us to offer hot, healthy and fresh food, making for a wholesome and memorable travel experience. Being guest-obsessed drives us to deliver differentiated experiences, inspire new possibilities in every aspect of aviation, and delight guests at every touchpoint in their journey”.

How do you book yourself a Gourmair meal? Guests can pre-book their meals on the website, mobile app or with preferred travel partners up to 12 hours before their flight. 

With a new year right around the corner, this is perhaps the best new experience for all those looking to indulge in some wanderlust. As Covid-19 cases continue to rise, however, it’s more important than ever to continue to maintain protocol and well, be safe. Happy gourmet travels with Gourmair!
