Bon Soirée invests in new staff and vehicles

Posted 9 August 2018 · Add Comment

A steady flow of business with clients including VistaJet and NetJets flying out of London airports, has prompted inflight business aviation caterer Bon Soirée, to order three new Citroen Berlingo refrigerated vans, which will arrive in September.



Director Derek Freeman (above) is also taking on five more staff to handle demand.
 
TAG Farnborough Airport is now the business’ number one airport for airside deliveries, closely followed by London Luton Airport (mainly Signature’s London Luton FBO) and RAF Northolt. 
 
The stepped-up activity reflects Bon Soirée's introduction this spring of a wider ranging menu, available for flight departments and charter brokers to book online and via App (downloadable from the App store). It features healthy and varied food that takes passengers from dawn to dusk.  
 
Bon Soirée's flexibility in handling special dietary requirements has helped to bolster bookings. “Without doubt, this has been the biggest shift in our business this past 12 months. The number of special requests we get these days – gluten-free, non-dairy, vegan, diabetic, no wheat – has increased ten-fold,” noted Derek Freeman. 
 
Working together with consultant chef Alan Bird, formerly with The Ivy and Soho House, Bon Soirée now offers a unique labelling system on its mainstay dishes. Alongside clear cooking instructions for flight attendants are colour photos detailing the presentation of each dish, while pictures of 14 different allergens are marked up with a tick.
