Alison Price On Air reports a rise in demand from Russian market.

Wednesday 25th July 2012

Executive jet in-flight dining provider Alison Price On Air, part of the Alison Price Group, has experienced a significant growth in demand from clients travelling to Russia over the past 12 months, with an intense concentration of orders heading to the Moscow region.

Between 10 and 20% of total orders, as compared with 3% two years ago, are now going to the Russian capital with most demand focused on the business market. Clients include wealthy Russian individuals, Oligarchs and Russian corporations expanding their business in the region.

The growth in numbers of Russian billionaires and the rise in Russian private jet sales over recent years have been well documented and Alison Price On Air has embraced the region's expansion. Daniel Hulme, Managing Director of Alison Price On Air comments: "Over the past 12 months, we have built on our success in the Russian market and are delighted that discerning Russian business clients are repeatedly choosing us to handle their in-flight business jet catering needs.

Typically, orders will include special requests for caviar, sushi, smoked fish and freshly cooked eel served buffet style to cater for our Russian clients' preferred style of dining. We continue to see an upward trend in this market and we look forward to serving even more Russian clientele."

Alison Price On Air typically caters for between one and three clients per Russian business jet flight aboard aircraft ranging in size from heavy jets such as the Airbus ACJ through to the mid-size category such as the Hawker 750.

Alison Price on Air is also hoping that its new large group catering service will be of interest to the Russian market. The new service, which launched on the 1st June 2012, has already received interest from specialist large group charter companies as well as event organisers looking to source the best-in-class service and cuisine Alison Price On Air has become known for.

"We know sports groups, music tours and orchestras frequently fly in and out of the region so we are hoping to capture some of this market with our new offering," said Hulme about potential clients from the CIS region.
