Cao Phong orange to be served on Vietnam Airlines flights
National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines will serve Cao Phong orange, a speciality fruit of the northern province of Hoa Binh, as a dessert in business class from December 8 to 22.
Cao Phong orange will be available on nearly 70 domestic and international routes, including those between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and those connecting the two cities with destinations in Asia, Europe and Australia. Cao Phong orange is the third specialty fruit served on its flights, after Luc Ngan litchi and Hung Yen longan.
Vietnam Airlines was named the World's Leading Cultural Airline and World's Leading Airline - Premium Economy Class at this year's prestigious World Travel Awards gala ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal last Saturday. The airline has further enhanced inflight dining experience by appointing Vietnamese-Australian chef Luke Nguyen as its Global Cuisine Ambassador. Nguyen recreated the in-flight menus to present authentic Vietnamese flavors from different parts of the country in harmony with on-board dishes.
