AirAsia Philippines, through food services arm Santan, rolls out a healthier, plant-based alternative of its Filipino favorite Sisig Meal for guests flying with the airline.
Offering a twist from the usual meat Filipinos are familiar with, the airline enables Filipinos to fly healthy with the Guilt-Free Sisig which is perfect for vegetarians and passengers looking for a healthier version of the top-selling dish.
“At AirAsia, our mission to enable everyone to fly goes beyond the skies – it’s about making every journey as welcome and accommodating for all our guests, including those looking for a healthier lifestyle change or with restricted diets. With the introduction of AirAsia Philippines’ first plant-based meal, we celebrate the diversity of our guests and ensure that each passenger, whether vegetarian or those aiming to be more health-conscious, can savor the experience of flying with AirAsia.” AirAsia Country Head for Communications and Public Affairs and Spokesperson Steve Dailisan explained.
To bring the Guilt-Free Sisig to AirAsia Philippines’ guests, Santan partnered with Green Rebel, an Indonesian-based food tech start-up. According to the brand, Green Rebel’s offerings are clean-labeled and made with natural and non-GMO ingredients and specifically made to mimic the taste and feel of uniquely Asian cuisine.
The move by AirAsia Philippines to introduce plant-based in-flight meals is part of a wider effort to bring healthier food options to AirAsia’s passengers across different locations, including Malaysia, Thailand, and more.
AirAsia’s Guilt-Free Sisig is available to all passengers for only PHP 190.00 if pre-booked and P 250.00 if ordered onboard. In addition, guests can also choose from a wide selection of inflight meals including Seafood Aglio Olio and classics like Beef Tapa with Scrambled Egg and Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak to make their trip more comfortable. It is encouraged to book in-flight meals, refreshments, and other flight add-ons at least 24 hours prior to departure.
