At the beginning of this month, Brussels Airlines began offering warm fries on flights with a duration over 2 hours within Europe. Those who order the snack are also given a choice of ketchup or mayo. The airline plans to add another local favorite, Belgian waffles in the near future. Belgian cheeses, chocolates, and beers have been on offer on long distance flights for years.
Belgium is known for Tintin, for surrealism, Tomorrowland, chocolate and above all… fries, something Brussels Airlines did not offer yet on board, until today. The airline has put fries on its in-flight menu.
Since years Brussels Airlines makes a big effort to be a flying ambassador for Belgium and to introduce the best of Belgium to foreign customers. For the Belgian customers it is a way to make them feel at home, right from the moment they board their flight. Brussels Airlines serves meals of Belgian Michelin starred chefs on its long distance flights. Next to that they have dedicated three aircraft liveries to Belgian icons: Tintin, surrealist painter Magritte and the Red Devils (Belgium’s national football team).
