Newrest starts inflight catering services with British Airways in Cancun

Newrest Mexico is proud to have started a new collaboration with British Airways on December 11, 2020.

Worldwide, Newrest collaborates with British Airways in 9 different countries (including Chile, Canada, Costa Rica, etc.) by offering the airline inflight catering services. In many of these countries, not all these activities following their shutdowns during the health crisis have resumed.

After several months of inactivity due to the pandemic crisis, British Airways was able to restart its flights from Cancun. Since December 11, the airline has operated three flights a week from Cancun (CUN) to London Gatwick (LGW).

We are pleased to offer business and economy catering services on these British Airways flights and to stand with airlines to support the recovery of the inflight industry.

To adapt our operations to this health crisis, all services are operated in disposable dishes.

Newrest hopes to be able to open new routes in Mexico with British Airways soon and to continue to provide our services to the company with joy!


Newrest has been present in Mexico since 1998 and the construction of the Cancun production unit. This base exclusively provides inflight catering and services to airlines. In May 2017, a new production unit was born with the aim of delivering quality services to the 40 daily flights of United Airlines. This building has been specially designed to carry out the 7,700 operations per year with a kitchen capacity of 5,000 meals per day. The Cancun unit serves a multitude of airlines, both short and long-haul. In addition, this unit was certified ISO 9001 2015 in May 2017 and renewed in 2020.
