British Airways Invests Millions of Pounds in New Catering For London-Gatwick Flights
British Airways announced Wednesday a multi-million pound investment in catering on flights from London-Gatwick with reimagined menus across short-haul and long-haul cabins.
Earlier this week, British Airways announced a new multi-million pound catering investment for flights from London-Gatwick. As part of the airline’s £6.5B guest experience investment, the new menus and reimagined meal choices will be available across short and long haul cabins. In this new offering, British Airways collaborated with Newrest who is working with suppliers across the south of England to provide the freshest seasonal ingredients. The new meal offerings will be available for customers across all long-haul cabins including World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy), Club World (business) and First, as well as Club Europe (business) short-haul flights. Euro Traveller guests will continue to enjoy a range of Marks & Spencer premium offerings. In Wednesday’s announcement, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, Carolina Martinoli said,
This is the latest development in continuously improving our catering. We’re incredibly proud of this new offering, and we hope our customers enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed developing it.”

British Airways serves over 70 destinations from London-Gatwick and has refreshed their Boeing 777 fleet based at the airport with next generation economy (World Traveler) and premium economy (World Traveler Plus) seats. Each seat has an all new Panasonic IFE system with 10-12” screens that offer four times the choice of movies, television shows and audio programs.
British Airways is investing £6.5B over the next five years to elevate their guest experience across the entire operation. During this period the airline will take delivery of 73 brand new aircraft including Airbus A350s and Boeing 787 Dreamliner widebody aircraft. The existing long-haul fleet is also being refreshed with new cabins and the airline is introducing redesigned lounges and a reimagined onboard service experience with new menus and amenity kits as well as high-speed Wi-Fi. British Airways recently introduced the “Club Suite” business class seat which allows for direct aisle access on its A350 aircraft. The Club Suite product will be rolled out across BA’s long-haul fleet over the next few years.
