A fresh take on inflight catering

ACK Inflight Service Inflight.JPG

Making people happy with food...

That's what I set out to do back at the turn of the century (I know, sounds terrible doesn't it?) and I'm pleased to say that it seems to have worked with my business going from strength to strength.

My name is Ali, the founder of ACK Inflight Catering. As a rule we do not provide set menus as we believe that you know best what you would like to enjoy on board. However we have provided some suggestions below should you need a little inspiration and are more than happy to discuss regional variations and accommodate any dietary requirements.

 

I hope that you enjoy what you see and look forward to hearing from you if we can be of service.

I called Ali with a private jet catering order. She did a fantastic job! Everything was very fresh and beautifully presented.

 

Ali also did a wonderful job with the particular packaging that was required and delivered on time. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and hope to return soon so that I can call Ali again!
