Newrest restarts inflight catering business with Emirates in Europe


Last month, we welcomed the restart of inflight catering activities in Africa, including Emirates, KLM, Turkish Airlines and many airlines.

The collaboration with Emirates, which came to an abrupt end in March 2020 with the Covid-19 crisis, looks brighter. Barcelona, Athens, Madrid, Paris and Brussels restarted a business stalled eight months earlier at the beginning of November. This collaboration between Newrest and Emirates is obviously carried out in strict application of the Covid protocols.


Newrest Greece is very pleased to welcome Emirates back to our Athens unit. Newrest will serve 5 flights weekly one afternoon flight to Dubai. This flight represents the resumption of activity since the cancellation of flights took place in March 2020. Hot meals for First-class, Business-class and Economy-class menus are served on this flight.

Barcelona and Madrid

Barcelona and Madrid also experienced a restart of the activity after several months without operation, from March to July 2020, and then several months of back-catering carried out from Dubai, from July to October.

Newrest will operate from Barcelona 3 flights a week, while Newrest in Madrid will produce and load 4 flights per week. All these flights will be operated in a three-class B777. The produced services are similar to the pre-COVID offer in all classes with a significant improvement in the services performed for the crew.


In Brussels, Newrest will serve 5 flights a week to Dubai. Again, we produce an offer for First-class, Business-class and Economy-class menus. This resumption of services was eagerly awaited and there is great hope for an ongoing collaboration to Dubai.


Finally, in Paris, inflight catering activities with Emirates have also resumed service from Charles de Gaulle Airport. To do this, the restart is planned with two daily flights, compared to three before the COVID-19 period. As a result, we load an A380 flight and a B777 flight. In Paris, services are also performed for the three classes: First-class, Business-class and Economy-class.


Newrest operates a catering service to airlines in more than 35 countries around the world. Our culinary experts based at our Inflight kitchens around our network are skilled to create customized meals adapted to meet the high-quality standards of our customers.
