Iberia has launched a new service enabling passengers to purchase inflight meals and snacks in advance of their flights.
Customers on short and medium-haul flights can now place orders via the “Manage my booking” page at iberia.com. After inputting their flight number passengers should then click on “personalise my flight”, where they will be presented with the ‘Deliverfly’ menu.
Do and Co-prepared food options available for pre-order include vegan and salmon ‘poke’ bowls, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes including lasagne, and “gourmet tapas”.
Drinks and packaged snacks can be ordered up to 60 minutes before departure, while fresh dishes must be purchased four hours before departure from Madrid, and 24 hours in advance from other cities served by Iberia.
Customers will receive an email confirmation of their order, which is then delivered to their seat inflight.
Iberia suspended its buy on board menu following the onset of Covid-19, and said that the new pre-order service “is intended to reduce waste – and weight – onboard the aircraft, as only food specifically ordered by customers will be loaded, eliminating food waste”.
Fellow IAG member carrier British Airways also recently moved to a pre-order only service for its short-haul paid-for food and drinks menu, which was relaunched in partnership with Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge in January.
Iberia recently revamped its economy and business class dining service on longer flights, partnering with catering company Do and Co to offer a seasonal Mediterranean-inspired menu.
