Amanda Clark, Eastern Airways’ Head of Cabin Services
and Training, said: “As a UK regional airline, we are working closely with many
local businesses in an effort to ‘go local’ with our complimentary on board products.
“We are very pleased to be able to work with Lottie Shaw’s who are providing tasty flapjacks and granola bars for our snack basket, which our cabin crew will offer to passengers during flights as part of the service.”
Charlotte Shaw, Director of Lottie Shaw’s, said: “We are very proud to have our traditional oat flapjacks and new ‘breakfast bar in your pocket’ granola bars available to customers aboard Eastern Airways’”.
“In an era when so many of us can skip breakfast altogether because we’re in a rush or on an early morning commute, it’s great to have an artisan breakfast, handmade with wholegrain honey oats, omega rich seeds and apricots offering an energy hit that could last you until lunchtime. I’m particularly pleased to hear that our products will feature on flights from our local airport Leeds Bradford.”
