With the delicious Thai classic now loved the world over, AirAsia has specially created a plant-based take on the Panang curry dish that brings all of the hearty and rich flavors of the curry, minus the meat. Aptly launched to warm up the palate during the rainy season, the menu item is to be extra special by being available for order both in-flight and prior to departure via Manage my Booking feature on the airasia Superapp.
Taking the experience even further are refreshing beverages made from genuine Lamphun province longans. The in-flight only drinks include Fresh Longan Juice and a Fresh Longan Americano topped with longan slices. Guests can order all these fantastic menu additions for a limited time only, from today to 30 September 2023. Find all the delicious pre-bookings by tapping Manage my Booking in airasia Superapp.
AirAsia Thailand Head of Inflight Services, Ms. On-anong Methapipatkul said: “The healthy twist on Panang was particularly challenging and novel for AirAsia as it sought to make the dish completely plant-based but at the same time able to satisfy both vegans and non-vegans alike. Panang’s enchanting flavor was recently guaranteed by a top ranking from TasteAtlas, which placed the Thai curry in the number one position on its Best Rated Stews of the World ranking*. The accolade prompted AirAsia to choose Panang for its plant-based menu highlight.
“On top of the wonderful warm curry, we are also introducing fresh longan juice and longan americano drinks, a novel act that allowed us to assist longan farmers in Lamphun who expect to grow no less than 4 tons of longan during the third quarter between July and September” Ms. On-anong elaborated.
Meanwhile, Shredded Fish Rice that has proven to be very popular amongst guests will also continue to be available on AirAsia flights, alongside a new collection of souvenirs including an Airplane keychain with foldable bag, luggage strap and AirAsia Travel Set.
Meals and beverages are served on all AirAsia and AirAsia X flights. As only limited quantities are available for inflight purchases, guests are advised to pre-book their favorite dishes either during flight booking or using the Manage my Booking feature on the airasia Superapp.
