Updated: May 12
Eurowings has debuted a new onboard ‘Fries in the Skies’ snack option, with hot crispy French fries that are sure to delight travelers of all ages. Now available on all flights over one hour, the sustainably packaged fries are served with vegan mayo.
On Wednesday (May 11, 2022), Eurowings announced their exclusive new ‘Fries in the Skies’ onboard menu option, with hot crispy French Fries served with vegan mayo. The carrier is now the only German airline to offer the popular snack. The fun and tasty new option is available on all flights over one hour, and is sure to delight travelers of all ages. Whether you call them pomme frites, chips or French fries, the delicious snack is an international favorite, and has even been at the heart of the business of many restaurant chains. Eurowings’ French fry menu option will be served in 100 percent recyclable packaging, as part of the airline’s commitment to sustainability.
In order to deliver the perfect ‘Fries in the Skies’, Eurowings has teamed up with Dutch partner Foodcase International, who has developed a new manufacturing process that uses less fat than conventional French fry production. The patented ovenable packaging ensures that heat is conducted throughout the fries, resulting in a hot, crispy dish above the clouds after about 20 minutes. The fries have been so well received that they have even been nominated for the Onboard Hospitality Awards 2022. As previously mentioned, the fries are accompanied by a vegan mayo, the perfect complement to the gluten-free snack.
