New Vegan and Plant-Based Options on Alaska Airlines

Latest News

Not long ago we brought news to you of United Airlines’ collaboration with Impossible foods to bring travellers some fantastic vegan options before and during their flights. Well, it seems this trend is catching as now, Alaska Airlines is offering its guests additional plant-based and vegan meal options in all of its cabins. 

The airline commented that it’s been listening to passenger requests, and as such, will be offering a vegan option called Soy Meets World, which is a vegan salad that’s created in partnership with Evergreens, a West Coast gourmet salad company. 

“We’re thrilled to offer our guests more healthy and nutritious choices when they fly with us,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, Managing Director of guest products. “We built our menu thoughtfully to offer more plant-based, vegan and gluten-free options, which include a range of fresh, bright flavours inspired by the West Coast and ingredients that are authentically healthy by nature, such as roasted broccoli, crisp romaine, and baby lettuce greens, quinoa, fresh fruit and more.” 

Alaska Airlines is Proud of its Food Range

Alaska Airlines is proud of the food it provides guests, stating that they use a variety of fresh and seasonal produce. At the moment, it offers three meal options in First Class, which includes its signature fruit and cheese on flights as short as 550 miles. 

In addition, there are many options in Premium Class, as well as the main cabin, including up to four fresh options on flights over 1,100 miles. There are also up to five snacks on flights over 223 miles, including Mediterranean Tapas, which is vegan and gluten-free. 

To make your journey easier, Alaska Airlines allows for the provision of pre-ordering a meal. This can save any worry or hassle, particularly for vegan travellers who aren’t always sure what they’ll be able to eat. Orders can be made 14 days in advance and up 20 hours before you leave the ground. 

We’re really excited to see this progression with regard to airline food. Personally, I love plane food, and always look forward to seeing what’s on offer. Even more so, it’ll be a treat knowing that more and more airlines are thinking of us vegans.
