Air Serbia introduces new Lenten menu for Easter
Air Serbia, the national airline of the Republic of Serbia, has introduced a new selection of Lenten meals in preparation for the upcoming Easter period.
The new Lenten menu consists of three options which are prepared in accordance with the fasting customs and traditions of the Orthodox Church and include dishes made with and without oil, fish dishes and completely vegetarian dishes.
Highlights of the menu include sea bass and prawns in Business Class, with traditional Serbian baklava for desert, and a white fish fillet in Economy Class which is followed up with an apple strudel.
Dane Kondić, Chief Executive Officer of Air Serbia, said: “Lent is one of the most important religious observations for our Orthodox Christian guests and we are delighted to offer a new selection of meals that are appropriate for this period.
“These meals are well appreciated by our guests and are requested by a significant number of travellers each year.
“Our aim is to provide the best possible flying experience, and that means having an inflight dining service that not only offers a range of delicious and fresh meals, but caters to the various religious beliefs of our passengers.”
Air Serbia first introduced Lenten meals in consideration that, in Serbia and many Balkan countries, there is a widely-respected traditional fast over Easter and Christmas, as well as during Wednesdays and Fridays. The meals are complimentary, however they must be ordered at least 24 hours before a flight.
In addition to offering Lenten meals, Air Serbia also provides halal, kosher, Hindu and Jain compliant dishes and caters to special medical and dietary requirements, such as gluten free and non-lactose meals.
