Food, Wine, and Fine Dining in the Sky

All posts

When you fly private with SHY, the sky’s the limit. We ensure every detail is tailored to your needs and that your flight experience is smooth and enjoyable, and the food is no exception.

Most private charters have at least a small kitchen and catering team. For shorter flights, they are delighted to provide lighter fare such as cold platters of fresh fruit, sandwiches, charcuterie, sushi and other small, delicious snacks.

We can arrange food for all your desires, from snacks on short trips to having a full sit-down meal. Catering has endless options when you travel with SHY's private jet charter.

What food can I have at the FBO?

The food available at the FBO will depend on the FBO itself. Each airport will have its catering facilities and restaurants, but you can expect the food at the leading FBOs to be of a high standard with plenty of options available.

Is there a set menu, or can I have anything I want while flying?

We can arrange anything you like. However, we are aware that some of our clients don’t have time to plan their meals ahead of time. That’s why most private jet menus include various options to cater to all tastes, including vegetarian and vegan menus and religious dietary requirements. Any choice you decide to make will be of the highest quality. 

You can even choose food from your favourite caterer or restaurant. Whether you crave simple takeaway food or a Michelin-starred dining experience, flying in a private jet offers no limit; anything is possible.

Can I have gluten-free meal options?

SHY can provide any meal on board. Special dietary requirements can be catered for on a private jet, meaning gluten-free, lactose-free, pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan and religious preferences can all be catered for, as well as menus clear of any other allergens.

If you have dietary requirements, We ask that you give your dietary restrictions and food allergies ahead of time. This will allow us to inform the crew and ensure you are taken care of.

Do I have to plan my meals in advance?

When you fly with SHY, you get to pick your menu. However, we know that clients have busy schedules and sometimes don’t get around to it, so most of our flights come with a variety of delicious food and drink options as standard.

Do the food options vary depending on which aircraft I fly?

Meal options may change depending on the size of the kitchen in the aircraft. This mostly has to do with the quantity of food that can be produced.

Short flights are more likely to offer small bites such as cold platters of fruit, meat, cheese, sushi, sandwiches, salads, and snacks. However, a full meal can also be easily arranged on a short flight. On the other hand, on larger jets and longer flights, you can expect small bites, a full meal, and the ability to cook homestyle meals for multiple guests.

What kind of drinks are available onboard?

Tea, coffee, and soft drinks will always be available on any flight, regardless of duration or time of day. Alcohol is also served on most flights, although this is not possible in certain circumstances within the Middle East. Drinks such as champagne are available as standard on many aircraft.

Can I request to have a chef on board?

A chef is not permitted to cook on board a private jet charter flight. However, if you have special dietary requirements and want a chef you know and trust to prepare a meal before you leave, or if you need the chef’s services at your destination, then just speak to our team.

Can I celebrate my special day onboard?

A tasteful experience on a private charter plane can always be tailored to your specific event or celebration. SHY will take great care and pleasure in ensuring your celebration is executed flawlessly.

Engagement soirees, birthday parties, and other catered events routinely occur at 35,000 feet. If you want your wedding reception to be unique, an intimate party or elegant dinner drifting high above the clouds as you cut the cake, SHY will ensure all your wishes are fulfilled.
