Qatar Airways has resumed its pre-pandemic in-flight dining experience on its London and Paris routes, once again offering the full personalised services that the airline is renowned for around the world.

Passengers in First and Business Class will no longer be offered meals on a serving tray. Instead, the food service will follow the fine-dining etiquette, where the silverware and chinaware will be presented on crisp white linen complete with candlelight.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said: “The past year and a half has been a challenging period for the aviation industry, however. we grew stronger and became more resilient as time went by. Today, we are happy to mark a new chapter that brings us a step closer to the recovery of the pandemic. Passengers will now be able to further enjoy Qatar Airways’ world-renowned in-flight services onboard our flights between Doha, London and Paris with more destinations to follow.”

Health and safety measures

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the airline has applied rigorous additional health and safety measures on board its flights in an effort to minimise contact between crew and passengers.

In Economy Class service, meals and cutlery were all served sealed as usual. First and Business Class meals were served covered on a tray instead of a table layup and the cutlery roll was offered to passengers as an alternative to individual cutlery service.

Qatar Airways also introduced single-use menu cards and sealed refreshing wipes during this time. All social areas, including the lounge onboard the aircraft, were closed adhering to social distancing measures, but will now reopen for premium passengers to access.
