Qatar Airways has unveiled newly curated onboard dining menus for its Australian flights, featuring sustainably sourced meals using local produce. The menus have been launched in phases across the airline’s Australian network for both Business and Economy Class passengers and are fully integrated into all flights.
The new menus have been designed to reflect Qatar Airways’ goal of serving sustainably-sourced quality meals onboard its flights. The menus feature premium and fresh local ingredients from sustainable suppliers across Australia, and will be rotated frequently to ensure passengers receive a variety of food and beverage options. Menus on outbound and inbound flights will vary to provide different options to passengers to relish an array of flavours, while reflecting the airline’s focus on utilising local ingredients.

Commenting on the airline’s latest onboard menu, Shashank Bhardwaj, Qatar Airways VP Catering Services, said: “Our passengers are passionate about food, and Qatar Airways has taken this passion into consideration when developing our new menus for the Australian market. We put great emphasis on providing an outstanding onboard experience, which extends to the quality of food we serve to our guests.”
“Qatar Airways works closely with farmers and wine-makers around Australia to source seasonal local, fresh and healthy ingredients. We are excited to share Australian produce with the world through our in-flight dining experience.”
Highlights on the new Business Class menus include New South Wales beef tenderloin with potato fondant, Hunter Valley chicken breast stuffed with tomato and ricotta, and braised Victorian lamb shank with coconut rendang sauce. Passengers can also enjoy Queensland barramundi with mild spicy kung pao sauce, Tasmanian smoked salmon with toasted English muffin, and burrata cheese with Bowen heirloom cherry tomatoes and basil pesto. The new menu includes a refreshed wine menu, which now features two Australian wines and one wine from New Zealand.
