Aeroflot Upgrades Business Class with Wines, New Menu

Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot announced a number of upgrades to its business class offering that according to the company “will make flying with Russia’s flag carrier an even more comfortable and enjoyable experience,” reported.

The company rolled out a new business class menu by acclaimed French chef Kamel Benmamar, known for his tenure at Michelin starred restaurants in France and the UK and currently brand chef at noted Moscow restaurant Ryby Net.

“Benmamar has created an exquisite menu with fresh vegetables, rich sauces and the finest meats and seafood,” the company said in a statement late last month.

“Aeroflot continues to expand its wine offering and gain recognition for its superb quality. The wine selection in business class was recently named among the best in the world by Global Traveler, the US magazine for luxury travelers,” the statement read.

“The airline was also honored this year at the Cellars in the Sky awards in the Best Business Class Fortified/Dessert Wine category for its offering of Graham’s Ten-Year-Old Tawny Port. Earlier this year, Aeroflot updated amenity kits for its business class passengers. The kit includes L’Occitane-branded premium cosmetics, including hand cream, light face cream, and shea butter ultra-rich lip balm; a sleep mask and slippers; an Aeroflot branded pen; and various toiletries. In April, Aeroflot won Best Business Class Amenity Kit – Europe in the annual PAX International Awards,” Aeroflot said.

In 2018, Aeroflot carried 35.8 million passengers (55.7 million passengers as Aeroflot Group including subsidiaries).
