Our menus, from Portugal, value Portuguese products and traditional desserts, so that what is national can reach the world. 

On intercontinental flights (departing from America, Tel Aviv, Luanda and Mozambique), our menus favour fresh local produce. 

We also favour fresh and sustainable ingredients.

All meals include the best bread.
