AirAsia Philippines has launched a new dish by Chef Jayps, the celebrity and Rockstar Chef known for creating dishes with strong local Filipino identity. The launch was held on April 5, 2018 at the Koi Cafe in Malagos Garden Resort in Davao City attended by Davao Digital Influencers and Media.
Chef Jayps’ new dish called Roasted Dalandan Chicken with Pimiento Sauce will be included in AirAsia Philippines Santan in-flight menu starting this April 12 in collaboration with Chef Jayps. AirAsia guests this summer has a new meal to enjoy in-flight. The dish uses internationally recognized Malagos Chocolate in 72% dark chocolate and will be included with the other Santan hot meals served in the AirAsia flights like the Asean favorites: Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rice (which according to Chef Jayps is his fave in the menu), and Thai Green Curry. The Nasi Lemak is my fave in the Santan menu.
Chef Jayps said that “I am incredibly happy and excited to share my first dish especially made for an airline and I love that AirAsia is literally taking Filipino home grown products and talents to greater heights.”
AirAsia Philippines CEO Captain Dexter Comendador said, “AirAsia is a sociable and innovative brand we take pride of our collaborative nature. There is so much talent and unique products in the Philippines especially in Davao that deserve the world’s attention and it brings us so much pride that we are with Chef JP, Malagos Chocolates and social entrepreneurs who all value a strong, innovative service culture – which is also the hallmark of AirAsia’s brand of service.”
“We value customer experience at all points of the journey – from the purchase of the ticket to leaving the airport, on board, and onto the destination. This latest enhancement in our in-flight menu makes flying with us also a delightful dining experience,” Captain Comendador said.
Guests of AirAsia are encouraged to pre-book their meals to save up to 20% compared to purchasing on board as it also guarantees that their choice of meal from the Santan menu is available. However, guests who booked without meals can still avail by adding it via the “Manage MyBooking” option after logging in to www.airasia.com.
