Asiana Airlines (CEO, Young-Doo Yoon) along with the staffs of Asiana Airlines, held a delivering event of the “Rice with Love” at Asiana Airlines head quarters located in Osae-Dong, Gangseo-Gu, Seoul for those in needy around the Ganagseo district.
President Yoon and the staffs of Asiana Airlines delivered 500 20 kg bags of rice to 20 local welfare facilities in the Gangseo district with the hope that they will have a warmer and better winter.
Since September 2006, staff at Asiana has collected pennies up to 999 won each month from each person’s salary and the fund has been used for the needy. The rice was produced in Oesampo 2-ri, Hongcheon, Gangwondo, an agricultural village called “1 Company for 1 Village” which Asiana is closely associated with. The rice will be delivered to the needy people such as the elderly living in solitary, the physically challenged and others with low incomes.
Meanwhile, the company announced that it has added a new menu to its cabin catering. Asiana after conducting a survey realized that passengers for long hauled flights (U.S, Europe, Oceania) were looking for menus that were not too burdening. In satisfying the passengers need, Asiana has developed a new menu which is low in calorie but tastes great the ‘Mulberry Leave Noodles.’ The Mulberry Leave prevents aging, lowers the cholesterol rates, and shows prevention of adult diseases. By using the adequate ingredients for the less moveable cabin environment, Asiana has studied and developed a special method of keeping the cooking and keeping the noodles to its best conditions.
Asiana has been trial testing the Mulberry Leave Noodles from the 1st of December on Business Classes for certain long-hauled flights. With the positive feedback and popularity increasing, Asiana has decided to service the Mulberry Leave Noodles on the Business class for the long-hauled (U.S, Europe, Oceania) flights. Asiana plans to provide this menu to its short/mid hauled flights starting from next year.
Asiana Airlines also services a variety of healthy Korean menus such as Korean Royal Table D'hote, and Nutritious Korean Cuisine, 'Ssam-Bab', Acorn-starch jelly with rice are just some of the variety of health conscious menus serviced inside the cabins of Asiana Airlines. Asiana Airlines will continuously develop new distinguished cabin menus by continuously monitoring new possibilities.
