Speaking on the new culinary collaboration in Friday’s announcement, Chef Jofrane Dailly, said,
"It is a great source of pride for me to have created these dishes for Air France. Discovering a place involves tasting its cuisine, and today I am lucky enough to be able to offer Air France customers the mixed flavours of Reunion Island. With these menus, I have tried to promote the island's culinary heritage while also adding my Indian origins. I also share Air France's desire to offer gourmet and local cuisine on board.”
As part of the airline’s fight against food waste, Air France is rolling out the pre-selection of hot dishes in Business Class, particularly for flights on departure from Reunion Island, guaranteeing the availability of the customer’s choice, while reducing waste.
