At 35,000 ft above ground level, a scrumptious snack or a wholesome meal, cooked to suit your palate, makes you feel a tad closer to home and your journey more pleasurable. Jet Airways’ refreshed in-flight menu and special food initiatives feature classics and popular dishes from around the country and the world.

Dining in the sky has seen an overhaul since the first lunchbox was served on a flight on October 11, 1919. Over the last century, airlines have revamped their menus to suit the varied palates of their passengers. From regional specialties to gourmet spreads, these meals are conjured up to satiate all the taste buds of the fliers – savoury to sweet. Jet Airways leads the way across the Indian aviation sector in providing unique dining experiences based on routes, festivals, and more such as special festive menus and innovative oven-proof meal boxes. Think gourmet burgers, authentic regional meals, a biryani festival, and a lot more – all while you fly among the clouds.


If you miss your cuppa on long-haul flights, we have South India’s favourite brew, filter kaapi, and a unique in-flight Sky Chai offering for our guests. A part of its refreshed in-flight dining experience, the filter coffee is available to guests flying First Class and Première onboard from/to India to/from Amsterdam, London, Paris and Toronto. The Sky Chai offering comprises a selection of distinct teas for guests travelling in Première and First Class on our international routes. Another gastronomical treat from our in-flight kitchen are the gourmet burgers. Two internationally popular burgers are prepared with an Indian twist – The Smoky Chicken Tikka Burger has a tandoori flavour and the Mouth Melting Pulled Lamb Burger takes you to the narrow lanes of Lucknow.

Onboard our domestic flights, you are in for a treat. Meals on domestic flights with a duration of less than 90 minutes are being served in special oven-proof meal boxes, ensuring the flavour and freshness of the food is preserved, and the meals are served piping hot. Popular snack options served in these special boxes include samosas, chicken empanada, a vegetarian/chicken pizza stromboli, with a dessert. With eight different menu combinations, you can expect a new surprise every time.

Additionally, biryani has made its way to the standard menu offering for lunch and dinner aboard our flights in our unique Biryani Fridays initiative for Economy fliers. Every Friday, on flights connecting the six metros – Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bengaluru – our guests can take their pick from regional specials such as Yakhni Pulao Biryani, Aloo Badi Ki Biryani, Hyderabadi Chicken Dum Biryani, Kabuli Biryani, Kolkata Style Chicken Biryani, Lucknawi Dum Biryani, Shahi Veg Biryani and Veg Mopla Biryani.

On our flights, we bring the festive fervour in boxes.


On our flights, we bring the festive fervour in boxes. Be it Pongal, Christmas, Independence Day or Diwali, we celebrate with food promotions such as Flavours of India and Biryani Festival. During these special occasions, all Economy guests onboard the domestic flights get to savour a vast and varied menu crafted by select chefs from our in-flight kitchen partners, Taj SATS, Sky Gourmet, and Oberoi Flight Services. The menu includes delicacies such as Milagu Varuval and Chicken Chettinad, Subz Kofta, Dhansak, Subz Chorchori, Ennai Kathirikkai, Murgh Banjara, Doi Murgh, and Chicken Malwani.
