In-Flight Catering Services Market Set to Expand at a 9.3% Compound Annual Growth Rate by 2030

In-flight Catering Services Market Overview

The size of the In-Flight Catering Market was estimated to be USD 15.5 billion in 2021. The in-flight catering services market will grow from USD 16.9 billion in 2022 to USD 31.6 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% during the forecast period (2022 – 2030). Increase in provision of personalized and organic in-flight meals to passengers are the key market factors fueling the growth of the in-flight food service market. With advances in in-flight food automation and food management, airlines offer a superior experience to passengers.

An example of a personalized service that airlines are always looking for is pre-ordered meal deals. In February 2020, American Airlines expanded the availability of  pre-ordered meal services for first class passengers on  American Eagle domestic flights. The company wants to offer regionally appropriate food to customers. This is then expected to drive market expansion. Companies are also embracing a unique trend to help meet their customers’ special diets and improve customer satisfaction: offering continental meals. Most in-flight caterers and airline caterers strive to improve their supply chain management (SCM) to produce quality products while effectively managing their in-flight catering supplies. Major market players are adopting cutting-edge modalities and systems in the production control sector to strengthen and improve processes and systems.

IT management systems, inventory management systems, lean manufacturing and just-in-time manufacturing are some of the most important tools food suppliers use to improve their offerings. The IFE system allows travelers to place orders through these companies. All Emirates business class flight attendants have recently received meal ordering devices. Consequently, such factors are expected to increase the CAGR of the in-flight food service market globally in recent years.
