Global Inflight Catering Market is valued at approximately USD 17.8 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 15 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. The growing demand for high-quality, nutritious food among air travellers would have a significant impact on the demand for in-flight catering services. In contrast to sugary and candy items, shoppers nowadays favour healthier and nutritious products that are prominently displayed food products, such as all natural, no additives, and free form kind. Consumer understanding of nutrition has fueled demand for nutritious food in the airline industry. The industry demand would be positively influenced by rising preferences of air travellers for safe food, regardless of seating status. For instance, in 2020, on flights longer than 350 miles, Alaska Airlines has reintroduced limited food and beverage service. Soft drinks and coffee were the only beverages offered on those aircraft, with free red wine and beer available only to corporate and first-class travellers. In addition, first-class passengers were given a snack basket with a variety of snacks. Similarly, in 2018, Singapore Airlines debuted a Gordon Ramsay-created first-class meal menu for international flights. In addition, The market is changing, with major service providers gradually joining long-term partnerships and joint ventures with airlines to develop new technologies and expand their market reach. For instance, in January 2018, Gategroup Holding and Asiana Airlines of South Korea formed a 30-year joint venture to become the operator’s sole in-flight caterer, serving passengers flying to destinations throughout North America, Australia, Europe, and Asia. Also in 2018, At Dublin Airport, the Dubai National Air Transport Association (dnata) unveiled its newest flight catering facility, which includes an industrial-sized kitchen, food processing and assembly room, and storage. However, transportation of food and low shelf life of the transported food, may impede market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
