Choosing a Caterer

Choosing a Caterer to Feed Your Private Jet Passengers

Tips from the Beyond and Above Manual:

When ordering catering in Europe or any overseas destination, the best advice is to be specific as possible. Use every means possible to get your point across, especially if there is a language barrier.

In most instances, you will be giving your catering order to the handler meeting the aircraft. You have a better chance of getting your order correct if you tell the ground handler and he/she translates your request to the caterer. Remember to order ice from the caterer. Rarely does the airport facility have ice available at short notice. Unless you are prepared to serve what Europeans call “Nescafe” or very thick coffee from the handler, plan on brewing your own coffee on board the aircraft.

Another option for catering is the hotel in which you are staying. Most hotels are willing to accommodate your request and are more than helpful in planning a meal and packaging. There are also gourmet food markets and specialty stores.

Private Jet Flight Attendants, generally become familiar with specific places; cities, areas surrounding frequented airports, and the neighborhoods located near "go-to" hotels. Search out the restaurants in these locations by spending your free nights feasting on the local culinary talent. Once you've found a few conveniently located and enjoyable dinning experiences, find out if they cater, schedule a meeting with the chef, and together develop a menu.

Like most things in our world today, there's an app for it; use "VIP Catering" to uncover caterers in areas you may be unfamiliar with.
