Caribbean Airlines has announced the launch of “Caribbean Cafe”, an in-flight snack and beverage catalogue featuring only locally made products from Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, as well as premium blends produced in Guyana.

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.

Caribbean Airlines has launched a number of new products, features and services for 2018 focused on improving customer service and convenience. “Caribbean Café” is the latest in-flight service since the launch of “Caribbean View” - wireless in-flight entertainment in August.

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. Credit card purchases on board also extend to the purchase of seat upgrades to “Caribbean Plus”, our economy extra legroom seating. “Caribbean Cafe” also offers speciality comfort products for purchase such as power banks, blankets and plush toys.”
