ENJOY ELEVATED CUISINE even above 30,000 feet with Hainan Airlines upgraded and highly acclaimed Hai Chef meals, crafted by some of the world’s most respected Michelin-starred chefs. It’s one more reason Hainan Airlines routinely ranks as a Skytrax five-star airline.
Prominent French chef Christophe Camacho joined Hainan Airlines last year and has helped the airline design its menus and meals based on four standards: seasonality and freshness, latest fashion, customization and original taste. Premium passengers can expect customized, original in-flight meals, featuring the best ingredients, following global trends and adopting popular cooking techniques and serving styles.
The Hai Chef program is a high-end private catering service brought to business-class passengers by cabin crew who completed a special culinary training and are dedicated to providing more healthy meal combinations and recommendations. The Professional Hai Chef team serves all long-distance business-class passengers and continues to receive acclaim. While enjoying the in-flight delicacies and delights, passengers can engage in conversation with the professional Hai Chef team.
Hainan Airlines also established partnerships with famed and Michelin-starred chefs from around the globe. Australian chef Brent Savage designed mouth-watering dishes for the airline, including pork belly with a garlic and yogurt puree and ocean trout mousse with pickled onions. In England, Michelin-starred Alyn Williams serves a succulent sand carrot soup with coriander and pan-seared sea bass with celeriac risotto, pickled golden raisins and toasted hazelnuts.
Partnerships are upcoming with two-starred chefs Mathieu Viannay and Christof Lang; one-star chefs Roman Paulus and Ugo Alciati; and the youngest three-starred Michelin chef, Jean Michel Lorain. In addition to the collaborations, Hainan Airlines regularly launches newly prepared in-flight meal and menus.
Also this year, Hainan Airlines debuted the first-ever direct service from Beijing to Mexico. Operated with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner three times a week, the route connects Tijuana to China in conjunction with Cross Border Xpress. The flight is also a convenient option for San Diegans and those in Southern California. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hainan Airlines’ entry into the North American market, currently operating the most non-stop routes between Mainland China and the continent.
