Travellers on our national airline Fiji Airways can now expect more upgrades in the onboard meals service.

Executive chef Joel Crompton has confirmed that changes have begun.

He said, “Moving into next year, we are looking at changing our whole service as well as the on-board offerings like offering more snacks as well as feasts depending on where you are travelling to.

“I am excited and honoured to be part of Fiji Airways’ family; I think it’s a very great opportunity for me and the company. We look forward to make some good food and time together on board.”

Mr Crompton has extensive experience in airline catering, working as a Chef at Gate Gourmet in Sydney and Hong Kong (where he looked after western food catering for Qantas and Air New Zealand), and later as a Product Development Manager for LSG Sky Chefs in South Korea.

He is working closely with the Customer Experience and In-flight Service Delivery teams.

Mr Crompton was part of the team on board the Fiji Airways inaugural flight from Nadi to Adelaide, South Australia last Friday.

Managing director/chief executive officer Andre Viljoen said Mr Crompton has joined the airline recently as part of a reinvigorated drive to enhance guest experience on board.

“We felt it was imperative that we have our own fulltime chef who would design our menus,” he said.

“He will provide oversight and manage all our catering suppliers to ensure that our onboard meals are consistently delivered according to our required quality and specifications, while managing processes and costs,” Mr Viljoen said.
