Jet2.com takes Carluccio’s sky high with launch of new Italian Snack Box
Leading leisure airline Jet2.com has teamed up with Carluccio’s, the local Italian restaurants, deli and online store, to offer an exciting Italian snack box on its In-Flight Menu, making it the first UK airline to help customers experience a taste of Italy in the sky.
Available to purchase for £4.80 and onboard all award-winning flights with the UK’s third largest airline, the Italian Snack Box includes: Taralli, a traditional savoury snack from Southern Italy made from olive oil, flour and water; two dips (tangy cheese and tomato & garlic); handmade skinny Grissini bread sticks, which have been baked and double dipped in chocolate, and Torcetti, a twisted butter cookie from Piedmont, Northern Italy, hand finished in sugar.
As well as being able to enjoy this tasty new addition to the In-Flight menu, customers will be sky high with excitement, as every Italian snack box contains a 20 percent off voucher for Carluccio’s. The voucher can be redeemed in one of over 25 Carluccio’s restaurants and delis across the country, as well as via the company’s online store, meaning customers can save a pretty penne long after they have returned from their break away.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “The addition of this fantastic Italian Snack Box gives our customers even more great choice when it comes to enjoying a tasty treat onboard. We are delighted to have partnered with one of the UK’s most loved restaurant brands, Carluccio’s, and to be the first UK airline to offer the restaurant’s products in the air, giving passengers the chance to enjoy a true taste of Italy at 35,000 feet.
“We are famous for our VIP service and pride ourselves on delivering the best customer service in every area of our business, which includes offering customers a wide selection of food and drink options when travelling with us. We cannot wait for our customers to try the exciting new addition to our In-Flight Menu and experience a taste of Italy in the sky.”
Sarah Strangeway, Head of Buying at Carluccio’s says, “We are thrilled to be taking Carluccio’s to the skies for the first time with Jet2.com and have created authentic Italian products sourced from artisan producers to give passengers a tasty quality treat on their travels.”
