KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- VistaJet, a global business aviation company has partnered with its gastronomy partners to provide unique Lunar New Year Experiences, including tossing of the auspicious Lo Hei on board a private jet while cruising at 45,000 feet.
VistaJet gastronomy partners include Shangri-La Singapore and The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong in which partnerships with Shangri-La Hotel are for flights leaving Singapore while flights out of the territory with The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong’s Michelin-star restaurant Tin Lung Heen.
“With the Chinese border now open, families can go back to China for reunions and corporations can send executives for business again. We are optimistic about the growth prospects for the region in 2023,” said VistaJet chief commercial officer, Ian Moore in a statement.
Lo Hei, which means ‘prosperity toss’ in Cantonese is a popular custom during Lunar New Year in Southeast Asia involving the festive Chinese dish Yu Sheng.
Shangri-La’s Michelin-star Shang Palace has created special Lunar New Year menus for VistaJet flights from Singapore, selecting the freshest and finest ingredients used in Chinese cuisine, such as abalone, scallops, lobster and coral trout.
Meanwhile, for flights from Hong Kong, treat yourself to a traditional ‘Yum Cha’ (tea and dim sum), on the world’s highest dining table served by restaurant partner Tin Lung Heen, at The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong.
‘Yum Cha’ on board a VistaJet flight from Hong Kong includes options such as the shrimp dumplings with scallops and steamed Alaskan crab meat dumplings topped with Salmon Roe.
“Give the ‘Yum Cha’ a sweet ending with a double-boiled superior Bird’s Nest served with coconut milk, almond cream and syrup,” said VistaJet.
VistaJet’s unique Lunar New Year gastronomy experiences are further enhanced by unparalleled onboard service in which its international Cabin Hosts are trained by the British Butler Institute.
The company has already experienced a large year-on-year increase in passenger traffic in Asia Pacific, with its flight traffic across Asia-Pacific grew 65 per cent year-on-year for the first nine months of 2022, driven partly by growth in Southeast Asia.
