Airline Glatt Kosher Demand Doubles

The number of travelers requesting kosher meals continues to rise, and requests for glatt kosher meals has more than doubled in the past five years, according to one source.

Several travel agents reached by KosherToday concur that the number of travelers requesting kosher food has risen throughout the world and the airlines and the airline catering industry are apparently responding.

In Canada, Gate Gourmet, a Swiss-headquartered company that serves 14 major airlines at Trudeau, including Air Canada, recently opened a kosher kitchen supervised by MK of Montreal. Gate Gourmet operates a similar kosher kitchen at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport serving more 15 airlines, including El Al Israel Airlines.

In Montreal, Gate Gourmet is already considering extending its kosher services beyond the airline industry, to perhaps retailers, institutions or even large private events, as it has been doing in Toronto.

In Britain, Hermolis caterers, the exclusive kosher airline service of British Air as well as many other airline carriers from China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, is said to have significantly expanded its operations in the past five years.

    I wonder which airlines you are traveling on. Most American airlines have stopped offering meals completely on domestic flights, and those which do, don't offer kosher meals (or any special meals) any more.

  2. Ed Brill says:

    Hi Barry – outside the US, sanity still reigns on many airlines. And of course even the US airlines do serve meals on international flights to Europe, Asia, and South America. I have been surprised in my world travels to see even some of the Arab airlines offer Kosher meals (I flew Qatar Airlines last year and it was an available option). The quality of food offered on the Kosher meal is often much better than standard economy-class fare.

    I'm a free market capitalist, but I can't say that I like the continual race to the bottom.
