Follow us on LinkedIn – The global market for in-flight catering services is expected to grow, supported by innovative services offered by airline companies. Airline companies are increasingly offering a broader food menu and food customization options to customers. Growth dynamics in the global airline catering market are largely reliant on the health of the aviation sector. Key factors spurring growth in the market include expanding global aircraft fleet, growth in the number of air passengers, and mushrooming of low cost airline companies in developing countries. Growing customer demand for nutritious food options, even while travelling, is driving growth in the market.
