Market Driver:

Increasing Adoption of Online Platforms to Enable Speedy Expansio

Improving in-flight catering systems and catering management to enrich passenger’s experience is likely to encourage the healthy growth of the market. The growing focus on providing tailored services to on-board customers such as pre-ordered meal services can have an outstanding effect on the market. For instance, in February 2023, American Airlines extended its pre-ordered meal service to the premium cabin passengers on regional American Eagle flights. The service aims to provide region-specific meals to passengers. Furthermore, the expansion of catering operations by major airlines is expected to promote the growth of the market. For instance, in January 2023, Dubai-based air services provider dnata has enhanced its global catering operations with the opening of a new facility in Canberra, to expand its presence in Australia by providing in-flight catering to commercial airlines as well as charter airlines carrying VIPs, government officials, and military.  In addition, the growing innovations in onboard meal menus coupled with the popularity of online platforms are expected to further incite the development of the market. However, the stringent quality regulations for in-flight meals are expected to dampen the growth of the market.  In-flight food is subjected to the approval of food quality and safety by stringent bodies, thus hampering the growth of the market.
