London — LSG Sky Chefs commenced servicing two daily flights oper-ated out of London-Heathrow by Air New Zealand. The contract, which came into effect on September 6, involves the supply of approximately 1,600 meals each day – equivalent to more than 580,000 meals a year.

Tony Finlayson-Green, LSG Sky Chefs’ Regional General Manager at London-Heathrow, said: “The contract between LSG Sky Chefs and Air New Zealand is great news for us – and reunites two business partners who have worked together very successfully in the past.”

He added: “Air New Zealand requires exacting standards of culinary skills, with a menu that offers outstanding cuisine for passengers while also providing a fusion of a range of diverse styles and tastes.”

The contract expands the global relationship between Air New Zealand and LSG Sky Chefs, which acts as the airline’s base caterer in its home market.
