More sustainable Michelin-starred menus for Air France

Air France has unveiled new Michelin-starred menus created by French chefs Michel Roth and Anne-Sophie Pic in its long-haul La Première and Business cabins.

Feature on flights departing from Paris, the menus work with carefully selected seasonal produce, vegetarian products, red and white meat and fish. The goal is to offer its customers exceptional French cuisine that is more sustainable and responsible.

Michelin-starred chef Michel Roth, Bocuse d’or and Meilleur Ouvrier de France, has created a new series of French gourmet and refined dishes for La Première cabin. The new offer includes an appetizer, a starter and eight dishes that will gradually be unveiled on the menu of the airline’s most exclusive cabin. Highlights include caviar, lobster, veal and chicken with black truffles and artichokes.

The continuing collaboration with triple Michelin-starred chef Anne-Sophie Pic, this season brings new menus to the long-haul Business cabin too with eight new dishes including braised beef, roast chicken risotto, saithe, and pasta with goats cheese and roasted pumpkin.

By the end of 2022, the airline is committed to offering 100% French meat, dairy products and eggs, as well as sustainably caught fish, on all its flights from Paris and in all cabins. A vegetarian dish will also be systematically offered and all meals will be prepared entirely in France. The company favours local produce, respecting seasonal produce and encouraging sustainable farming. The kids’ and infants’ menus will be made exclusively from organically-grown produce.

As part of the fight against food waste, Air France is this year making it possible to pre-select a hot meal in the Business before departure. This service combines the guarantee of availability of with fairer consumption. The airline is also committed to recycling and eliminating 90% of single-use plastic onboard its aircraft by early 2023. End of life programmes are being set up to donate product to charity.

Sustainable catering is part of Air France’s roadmap for more responsible travel. The airline has developed its initiatives under the Air France ACT label. All these actions are detailed online at:
