Citilink, the low-cost subsidiary of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, wants to allow passengers to choose prior to departure what to eat on the flight.
The new service, named "Dining Experience", is said to offer many options, from Indonesian dishes to Japanese, Western and Korean.
"Dining Experience is an innovation of Citilink Indonesia to increase our service and passenger satisfaction in an affordable way," Citilink Indonesia vice president cargo and ancillary Harismawan Wahyuadi said in a statement.
One of the features of this service is "Create Your Own Tray", which enables passengers to choose a set menu for their inflight meal, from the appetizer to the dessert and beverages.
Customers booking the service will also be entitled to additional facilities, such as lounge access, priority boarding, extra miles, choice of seat and an insurance named Super Shield and Flight Plus.
Available for flights of more than one hour, Dining Experience can be booked through the website prior to the flight. However, currently the number of passengers that may book the service is limited to five people per flight. (nic/kes)
