Premium Service

Gate Gourmet’s premium catering offers customers the highest level of customized catering and provisioning service available in the industry – from First and Business Class cabins or VIP charter flight services, to bespoke private jet service. Gate Gourmet prides itself on serving some of the most distinctive cabins aboard the most recognizable airlines flying today.

Gate Gourmet also provides food and beverages for airport lounges that are managed directly by customers or through a partnership with our colleagues at Performa. We support menu development and delivery of a wide array of hot and cold buffet meals including breakfasts, lunches, dinners and afternoon tea throughout the day.

Our premium catering offering begins with consultations with Gate Gourmet’s experienced team of executive chefs, to fully understand the scope of your onboard program, including menus, drink service, service presentation and amenity kits or other comfort items. Our teams work closely with you throughout the menu development process and continually over the course of the relationship to ensure that your needs and expectations are met and exceeded, and that our unparalleled level of service is consistently achieved.
