With the new Air Dolomiti Business Class Espresso takes flight!

Air Dolomiti, the Italian airline of the Lufthansa Group, is revitalising its business class with the installation of espresso coffee machines on board and the proposal of a new ceramics service.

Passengers will thus be able to enjoy all the taste of a real espresso coffee even while flying: Air Dolomiti is the first Italian carrier to offer this exclusive in-flight service!

The coffee machines boast reduced weight, ease of use and optimised energy efficiency to allow the preparation, during flight, of an espresso with a rich, full-bodied flavour that reflects the Italian tradition of good coffee.

Air Dolomiti has chosen Caffè Illy, an industry stand-out, which combines nine different Arabica blends selected from the world’s best coffee harvests.

Espresso coffee will be available to all business class passengers and, for a fee, also to economy class guests.

Offering espresso coffee is just one step on the path to renewing the on-board service. The project, which began last year with the introduction of new seats, is now complete with a modern ceramic service for Business Class: a delicate fusion of the pearly white of porcelain and the lively spirit of the turquoise diamond logo that echoes the colours of the livery.

The new gourmet menus will be designed with the usual focus on Italian raw materials: a special break that aims to combine the quality of food and drink with the protection and care for the planet.

The company will continue to serve its dishes with steel cutlery and glassware in order to maintain unaltered tastes and flavours and to offer a service that is always mindful of its impact on the environment. Even the accompanying materials will be made entirely of recycled raw materials: in line with the Lufthansa Group’s strategy, Air Dolomiti is committed to minimising the use of plastic on board.

After renewing our interiors and our in-flight service with the introduction of SpazioItaliaBar, we felt it was important to relaunch our Business Class product as well. In addition to the comfort of the new seats, the service offers exceptionally tasty menus, a selection of fine wines and now also the possibility of enjoying an excellent espresso coffee. We are the first Italian airline to offer it at altitude and we are very proud of that,” says Steffen Harbarth, CEO of Air Dolomiti.

Air Dolomiti has been providing for many years a high class and comfortable transport: with the new Business Class, we are confident that we are giving our passengers an exclusive service. We are constantly striving for innovation and quality to offer those travelling with us a wellness experience that goes far beyond the flight. At the same time, we maintain a strong focus on continuous improvement of our environmental performance.” continues Dario Bruni Vice President Business Development, Product, ICT & Managing Director Air Dolomiti Deutschland GmbH.
