Korean Air to introduce Korean-style vegan meals


Korean Air is set to introduce Korean-style vegan meals from March onwards, with dishes varying per route and season.

All passengers will be able to enjoy dishes such as steamed barley rice with burdock, roasted shiitake mushrooms, mung bean jelly salad and roasted tofu with plum sauce.

Prestige (business class) and first class passengers will also be able to order ginkgo nut porridge and roasted yam with soybean paste.

Dishes will be available to pre-order up to 24 hours prior to departure on all international routes departing from Korea.

From next month the airline will also introduce a new selection of wines on routes to Los Angeles, Paris and New York, which will gradually be added to all routes within the year.

Several other airlines have introduced vegan offerings in recent months, including All Nippon Airways (ANA).
