Air New Zealand's New International Menus

Air New Zealand's New International Menus

Provide a Taste of Regional NZ

Some of New Zealand's most popular tourist destinations will be showcased to the world over the coming months through Air New Zealand's new international menu designs, the first of which takes flight tomorrow.

The theme of the menus for the airline's First and Business Classes is "Regional New Zealand", featuring eight key areas around the country and the famous natural produce and local highlights that make each region distinct.

The regions and local fare profiled in the menu card design are: Bay of Plenty (kiwifruit), Canterbury (walnuts), Coromandel (greenshell mussels), Hawkes Bay (wine), Kapiti Coast (cheese), Marlborough (sauvignon blanc and king salmon), Nelson (scallops) and Northland (avocado).

Air New Zealand Premium Class Product Manager, Donna Wilson, says the airline's latest menu theme is designed to champion key tourist destinations to the lucrative international travel market as well as highlight the diverse flavours New Zealand has to offer.

"The newly designed menus for our international routes celebrate the sights and natural wonders that make New Zealand a truly unique destination and the country's top produce," she says.

"For many international travellers Air New Zealand's in-flight food and wine offering is their first 'taste' of New Zealand. We believe the new menu will not only excite the palates of travellers but also encourage them to visit the many wonderful parts of New Zealand renowned for their food and wines."

The menu cards will be rolled out in three-month phases with the first selection featuring Coromandel, Hawkes Bay and Marlborough going on board from 12 July.

Air New Zealand's First and Business Class beverage list also champions celebrated New Zealand wines from the country's most respected wine regions.

The new in-flight menus are created in consultation with a team of contributing chefs including New Zealand born Peter Gordon of The Providores in London and Tony Adcock of Harbourside Restaurant in Auckland.
