Etihad Airways has flown out the world’s best chefs to Melbourne for the announcement of the world’s 50 best restaurants. The food and wine capital of Australia served as the perfect host for the unique event. The week-long event in Australia saw the world’s biggest names in gastronomy take part in a range of different activities.
At end of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants gala event, attendees were given a brief taste of the dishes available on the Etihad Airbus A380. Guests were given a glimpse into the array of different cuisines available for Etihad customers, as the airline was innovatively able to turn the event into a marketing outlet. Guests were also given the chance to remove pieces of chocolate from an edible world map in a special contest giving participants the chance to win two business class tickets to anywhere in the world on the Etihad network.
Vice president of Etihad Airways’ Marketing Partnerships, Patrick Pierce stated, “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants program has given us an unprecedented opportunity to showcase the quality of our food and beverage offering and unique approach to hospitality to some of the biggest names and influencers in the culinary world today.”
Guests flying with Etihad in the Airbus A380 from all across the globe to Australia, are given a world-class dining experience in the air. The airline offers its flyers an onboard dining service matched by no one else in the business. Each A380 has its own pantry on board, always stocked with fresh ingredients, allowing for creative meals to be prepared that are not on the menu. Etihad currently has 235 in-flight chefs and 495 food and beverage managers, ensuring that everyone has the best dishes possible on their flight.
