Looking for an excuse to splurge on business class flights? This might be your sign to do so. Qatar Airways has partnered with Malaysian celebrity chef icon, Chef Wan, unveiling a new Business Class menu. Starting July 2022, the indulgent menu of delicious, locally-inspired meals will be available to Business Class passengers departing from Kuala Lumpur for Doha.
Qatar Airways recently hosted an exclusive food tasting session with members of the media and social media influencers. Much to the delight of its guests, Chef Wan held a cooking demonstration of his famous Nyonya Curry Laksa that instantly became the crowd’s favourite. Chef Wan’s menu features classic Malay cooking techniques and traditional Malaysian flavours.
Highlights include charcoal-grilled fish fillet with spicy Portuguese sauce, paired with lemuni rice, okra and chili padi, as well as lamb kuzi served with Terengganu style rice, cashew nut and acah buah. The menu also includes an exclusive heritage recipe of nyonya curry laksa passed down through different generations from Chef Wan’s family. Malaysia’s favourite sweet treat of “Goreng Pisang” also made it to the menu, and has been given a Chef Wan twist as Deep Fried Caramel Bananas.
Qatar Airways celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and as the winner of Skytrax World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering 2021, the airline continues to evolve its onboard meal offerings with exciting culinary collaborations with celebrity chefs and dining establishments worldwide.
Qatar Airways has been one of the few airlines that has remained in operations since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, and has maintained the Kuala Lumpur – Doha service throughout the pandemic period to provide global connectivity to the Malaysian market. Additionally, Qatar Airways also further enhanced its strategic partnership with Malaysia Airlines in May 2022 to launch a non-stop service from Kuala Lumpur to Doha. With this codeshare expansion, both airlines are currently operating a total of 14 weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Doha. This expansion benefits travellers from across the globe, providing them with a greater combined network and a seamless travel experience.
A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was recently announced as the ‘Airline of the Year’ at the 2021 World Airline Awards, managed by the international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax. It was also named ‘World’s Best Business Class’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Airline Lounge’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Airline Seat’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering’ and ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’. The airline continues to stand alone at the top of the industry having won the main prize for an unprecedented sixth time (2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021).
