Caribbean Airlines yesterday launched Caribbean Café, an inflight snack and beverage catalogue featuring only locally made products from Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica as well as premium blends produced in Guyana, according to a statement from the company.

From September 1, customers travelling on intra-Caribbean and international flights operated by the airline’s Boeing 737 fleet will have the option to purchase an array of sweet and savoury snacks, along with beverages ranging from non-alcoholic to premium alcoholic options.

Caribbean Café complements the airline’s free in-flight meals and offers customers a “taste of home” as some of the snack offerings feature delicacies such as tamarind balls, fudge, preserved mango and spice bun.

At the launch of Caribbean Café held at the Trinidad & Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) head office in Barataria, TTMA CEO, Dr Ramesh Ramdeen commented, “Such an initiative is a welcomed one where locally produced, high quality snacks and beverages can be made available to all persons utilising the services of Caribbean Airlines.”

Chief Executive Officer Garvin Medera states: “Caribbean Airlines is rapidly innovating in services and technology to improve the customer experience. Customers can now purchase any of our local snacks and beverages from the Caribbean Café catalogue mid-flight, with the use of cash and credit cards,” the release said.
