Whether it’s a quick snack or a haute cuisine meal, we believe our onboard meal offerings will delight your taste buds.

  • Business Class

    On all of our flights we aim to make our meals a highlight of your journey. That’s why two of South Africa’s most sought-after chefs, Reuben Riffel and Benny Masekwameng, have come onboard to create signature dishes that could be served with pride in any top restaurant.  

    Reuben now runs his own restaurant in Franschhoek as well as running a signature restaurant in Cape Town’s One&Only Hotel. Now you too can taste his delicious treats without waiting for a table reservation.

    Working with Benny is an absolute treat. The Tsogo Sun celebrity chef and a popular judge on MasterChef South Africa has added an inspiring and tantalising touch to our menus.

    From starters to desserts, each dish has been carefully designed for its taste, texture and travelling star qualities. We always have a vegetarian option available too. Award-winning South African wines and Méthode Cap Classique bubbly has been specially selected to pair with our chefs’ designer dishes.

  • Economy Class


    Depending on the length of your flight, we will serve you a light snack or a delicious multi-course meal made using our very best local products. All snacks, meals and beverages are complimentary and are included in your ticket price.
