Safi Airways to launch new catering services

May 30, 2013 - 19:34

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Safi Airways, a privately-owned international airline, is all poised to introduce new business and economy class catering services during the current month, an official said on Thursday.

Safi airways launched operations in 2006 to fill the market gap for a reliable service airline in linking Afghanistaninfo-icon with the rest of the worldinfo-icon by the Safi Group of companies, a conglomerate based in Dubai.

The airline was in the process of strengthening all departments with expertise, knowhow and technology, Naeem Mahamoor, marketing manager, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

“The airline will introduce its new catering service in business and economy classes from the middle of June. Business class passengers will be welcomed with our very own Safi Airways signature drink,” he said.

He added the passengers would enjoy a selection of carefully prepared canapés with refreshing beverages and tempting appetizers, local and international main courses and a choice of delectable desserts.

Economy class passengers would be offered the best of local and international cuisines, he promised, calling Safi Airwaves the only full service carrier operating to and from Kabul.

“We firmly believe in quality and excellence for Safi Airway’s valued clients. The majority of our clientele are western expatriates and affluent locals, the marketing manager insisted.

Their flight attendants are doing all they could to attain excellence in various disciplines of catering and presentation, with an emphasis on how to exceed guest expectations and pay attention to the smallest service details.

“This is what will set Safi Airways apart from its competitors in the region and stay on top as a leader in the full service category. We are honoured as President Hamid Karzai also flies with us on our domestic and international route network,” Mahamoor continued.

He reiterated the airline -- the first Afghan carrier meeting European Aviation Safety Agency requirements -- remained committed to maintaining uncompromising international safety standards.

“We are the first Afghan carrier certified as complying with International Civil Aviation Organisation and IATA Operational Safety Audit regulations. We operate a modern fleet of Boeing and Airbus aircraft,” he maintained.

The airline currently operates two flights a day from Kabul to Dubai and daily flights to New Delhi on the international route network and from Kabul to Herat.

With its commercial team trying to obtain government approval, the airline will have a couple of more destinations added to its route network by the end of the year.
