In Canada, Newrest supports the business recovery with its inflight catering

Quality airline catering service continues across the Atlantic! In one hand, Air France and Newrest participated in the first steps of the A350-900 "Marseille" in Canada. On the other, Air India confirms to support the same flight frequency as usual for the summer 2021 from Montreal. In this context, the Group is aligning itself with the airlines for the recovery of the sector.

First inflight catering service by Newrest for the Air France special plane « Marseille »

On April 13, the YUL unit served meals to passengers on the first A350-900 named Marseille. It departed from Montreal Trudeau airport. The green aircraft has a capacity of 324 seats including 34 seats in business class. Marseille consumes 25% less fuel and has a 40% smaller noise footprint than an equivalent sized aircraft. The teams are delighted to offer quality inflight catering for this great innovation which is perfectly aligned with Newrest’s green initiative. The Group’s “Be the Change” charter commits it to participate in initiatives that reduce greenhouse gases. The ecological transition is already underway.
