The launch of Santan Food Festival - a special event to promote hot inflight meals across AirAsia’s network saw the appearance of AirAsia's big bosses: Group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, AirAsia Bhd Executive Chairman and AirAsia X Group CEO Datuk Kamarudin Meranun and AA Group Head of Ancillary Revenue Choudhury Hassan Peter at RedQ for the launch cum press conference.

Working with local Asean enterprises and farmers in developing more F&B products, AA’s Santan menu offers regional specialities with santan or coconut milk as a key ingredient. The idea is to create a unique food experience with the vision of replicating on-ground gourmet experience inflight. 

Regional media and social media influencers showed up in full force to sample the signature Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice as well as new Santan meal options such as Thai Green Curry with Rice, Ashok’s Butter Masala Chicken Biryani, Korean Kim-chi Stir-fried Chicken with Rice, Roti Jala with Chicken Curry, Rice with Beef in Black Sauce, and Miso Chicken with Garlic Rice among others.
Fleet-footed AirAsia X crew Assraf Nasir (3rd from right) who nailed Britney Spears’ Toxic shimmy down pat in his viral video delivered another show-stopping performance to effusive response. Also spotted at the media event was AA President of North Asia, Kathleen Tan (3rd from left).

AA guests are encouraged to pre-book their meals with the Santan Combo Meal to ensure availability and priority meal service onboard.
