The caterer reports that inflight dining orders are up by 20%.

A steady flow of business with clients, including VistaJet and NetJets flying out of London airports, has prompted the inflight business aviation caterer to order three new Citroen Berlingo refrigerated vans, which will arrive in September. Director Derek Freeman is taking on five more staff to handle the growing demand.

TAG Farnborough airport is now the business’ number one airport for airside deliveries, closely followed by London's Luton airport (mainly Signature’s London Luton FBO), along with RAF Northolt.

The stepped up activity reflects Bon Soirée's introduction this spring of a wider ranging menu, available for flight departments and charter brokers to book online and via an app. It features a range of healthy and varied food.

Bon Soirée's flexibility in handling special dietary requirements has also helped to bolster bookings. “Without doubt, this has been the biggest shift in our business this past 12 months. The number of special requests we get these days – gluten-free, non-dairy, vegan, diabetic and no wheat,” has increased ten-fold,” notes Derek Freeman.
