Vistara has announced a special food festival to take place onboard all long-haul fights to celebrate the carrier’s two-year anniversary of long-haul operations.
A unique commemoration
Full-service Indian airline Vistara announced the beginning of a food festival – ‘Dawat-e-Awadh’ – onboard their long-haul services to commemorate two years of operating long-haul.
Dawat-e-Awadh is loosely translated to English as a ‘Feast of Awadhi’.
Passengers will be able to enjoy Awadhi cuisine and delicacies as part of the airline’s inflight meals from 5 August to 31st.
The meals will be available on all flights from Indira Gandhi International Airport to Paris, London and Frankfurt.
These celebratory infight menus include several vegetarian and non-vegetarian Awadhi dishes and are thought to draw upon the rich culinary diversity of India in order to reflect contemporary Indian dining. It clearly is Vistara’s attempt at a celebration of its country, not just the achievement of the carrier.
The dishes include Zafrani Pulao, Dum ka Paneer, Murg Handi Korma, Aloo Bukhara Kofta, Achari Murg Khurchan with Khamiri Roti, and indulgent desserts like Shahi Tukda (bread slices soaked in rose sugar syrup) and Matka Kulfi (a frozen dairy dish served in a clay pot).
Vistara Chief Commercial Officer Deepak Rajawat said:
“At Vistara, we are on a constant quest to find ways to delight our customers, and completing two years of our long-haul operations gives us the perfect reason to celebrate with them. We have often received very positive feedback on Indian regional favourite meals from our customers on flights to and from the UK and Europe, regardless of their demographics. ‘Dawat-e-Awadh’ is designed to create a memorable gastronomic experience for our customers onboard India’s finest full-service carrier.”
Vistara started its long-haul operations with direct connectivity between Delhi and London Heathrow in August 2020. Two years later, the carrier now offers direct connectivity to and from several international destinations – Bangkok, Dhaka, Dubai, Frankfurt, Jeddah, Kathmandu, London Heathrow, Paris, and Singapore.
