Alaska Airlines cooks up new vegan and plant-based options for travelers seeking fresh, healthy options

We've filled our flight menu with a range of fresh, bright flavors inspired by the West Coast

SEATTLE, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer, Alaska Airlines guests can veg out on board with more gluten friendly, plant-based and vegan meal options available in all cabins. 

We're listening to our guests who told us that they are looking for more plant-based menu options when traveling. Our new vegan option, called the "Soy Meets World," is a vegan salad developed in partnership with Evergreens, a West Coast-based company that makes gourmet, freshly chopped salads. 

"We're thrilled to offer our guests more healthy and nutritious choices when they fly with us," said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products. "We built our menu thoughtfully to offer more plant-based, vegan and gluten-free options, which include a range of fresh, bright flavors inspired by the West Coast and ingredients that are authentically healthy by nature such as roasted broccoli, crisp romaine and baby lettuce greens, quinoa, fresh fruit and more." 

Most comprehensive menu in the sky 

We're proud to offer our guests a variety of fresh and seasonal meal selections and thirst-quenching beverages on our flights. 

Today, we have the most comprehensive domestic food and beverage program in the industry. We offer three meal options in First Class, including our Signature Fruit & Cheese on flights as short as 550 miles. 

We also offer ample food options in Premium Class and Main Cabin, which include up to four fresh options on flights over 1,100 miles and up to five snack items on flights over 223 miles, such as the Mediterranean Tapas Pack (vegan and gluten-free). 

Now through October, guests can enjoy fresh summer flavors that include berries, summer squash, corn, citrus and tomatoes. To see all of our food and beverage offerings, visit
