Sunwing Airlines Invests in New Hot & Fresh Bistro Meals Prepared Daily

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 23, 2013) - Recognizing the growing demand for healthy meal options with natural ingredients, Sunwing Airlines is enhancing its award winning inflight service with an updated menu featuring new epicurean sandwiches prepared daily on fresh baked bread and heated to perfection in onboard ovens. The airline's complimentary inflight service on Southern flights includes a welcome glass of champagne upon departure from Canada, a choice of hot meals, red or white wine accompanying lunch or dinner, juice or soft drinks, a fresh baked treat, and coffee or tea.

"Our complimentary new menu additions represent a multi-million dollar investment towards enhanced customer experience at a time when many airlines are stripping back services and decreasing costs," says Mark Williams, President of Sunwing Airlines. "We've always felt that our customer's vacation should start when they board our plane and are handed a glass of champagne and a hot towel," he added.  Williams believes this to be so important that he and members of the Sunwing executive team spent months tasting the chef's creation before settling on the freshest and tastiest options possible.

The new "Hot & Fresh Bistro" menu, available as of November 1, includes either a toasted pretzel bun with Montreal smoked meat, Swiss cheese, dill pickle, and grainy mustard, or a turkey and brie cheese sandwich on cranberry ciabatta. Travellers can choose from a hot deli sandwich or a traditional Neapolitan-style three cheese pizza, imported from Italy with no additives or genetically modified ingredients. A popular choice for vegetarians and health conscious travellers, the pizza is crafted in an artesian way with only the freshest ingredients, baked in a stone oven in Italy, flash frozen to preserve freshness and nutrients, and then heated in the onboard ovens. The accompanying dessert is a generous slice of fresh baked marble cake. Also available on November 1, Sunwing passengers will be able to enjoy an exciting new treat when the airline introduces a delicious dessert -- vanilla ice cream from Wholesome Farms. The Canadian dairy product is kosher as well gluten and nut free. 

Hot breakfast options include a choice of a hot flatbread sandwich with real cheddar cheese, egg, and turkey, or a hot Monterey and cheddar cheese sandwich on a croissant bun with sultana raisins. Breakfast is accompanied by juice or soft drinks and a slice of fresh baked banana loaf. 

Other complimentary Sunwing inflight services include a free headset so that vacationers can enjoy the inflight audio visual entertainment including first-run movies, children's activity kits, and a complimentary baggage allowance for 20kg on checked bags and 5kg for carry-on items. Travellers wishing to enjoy Sunwing's award winning champagne flights can book now and save up to 30% at www.sunwing.ca or by contacting their travel agent.
