Australian Airline Jetstar Airways Adds PETA-Approved Vegan Menu to Flights!
Jetstar’s chief commercial officer Catriona Larritt stated of the new menu:
“The feedback we were getting is that it can sometimes be hard to find vegan friendly options while travelling. Research has demonstrated that ‘vegan’ was googled more in Australia and New Zealand than anywhere else around the world. It’s obviously of growing interest to our local customer base and we wanted to respond to these insights.”
The new vegan options are available on international flights outbound from Australia, and will be made available on domestic and trans-Tasman routes from February 1, 2018.
As a result of the new menu, PETA announced that it is “giving Jetstar a Proggy Award for being the Most Vegan-Friendly Airline in Australia!”
Melbourne is also home to the world’s largest vegan shop, The Cruelty Free Shop.
