Vietnam Airlines inaugurates new catering facility at Noi Bai airport

The Noi Bai Catering Service JSC (NCS), a member of the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, has inaugurated a new food processing centre at the Noi Bai International Airport.

The facility covers over 21,000 square metres with three storeys and one basement, which has a capacity of providing 35,000 portions per day, 3.5 times higher than that of the old one.

It was designed by IO Consultants, which has partnered with the world’s leading catering companies such as Cathay Pacific Catering Services, Emirates Flight Catering and LSG Sky Chefs.

To meet the increasing demand and stringent standards of the catering market, the facility is equipped with advanced technology and equipment, meeting requirements on food hygiene and safety standards set by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Most of the equipment for the kitchen, bakery, refrigeration and food storage was imported from prestigious brands specialising in aviation food processing in Germany, Italy, Switzerland and France.

NCS provides portions for more than 25 domestic and international airlines, including the standard airlines of All Nippon Airways, Asiana Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of Vietnam Airlines Pham Ngoc Minh said NCS has made active contributions to providing international standard meals and introducing Vietnamese food to millions of passengers worldwide.
