Emirates Flight Catering provides in-flight catering and support services to over 130 airlines across the globe from its two catering units at Dubai International Airport.
Combined, the two units make up a truly impressive facility. They span 88,000 square metres and incorporate the highest level of automation available to airline catering facilities, including a 2.55km-long electric monorail which transports meal carts, and a conveyor system for transferring clean items from the equipment cleaning area to the production kitchen for food plating and then on to the operational areas for flight packing. The facilities also feature a vacuum waste system with pipes over 600 metres in length. Both facilities feature the latest systems in hygiene, energy saving and automated food production equipment.
The technologically advanced catering facility, EKFC1, is dedicated to the flights of Emirates–servicing an average of 236 Emirates departures daily. The team at EKFC1 delivers the best Dubai has to offer in fine dining and on one of the world’s youngest aircraft fleets.
The EKFC2 facility services all other airlines landing and departing from Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport. This includes flydubai and 128 additional airline customers. In addition to legacy commercial carriers, EKFC2 services private aviation and VIP flights. With a multitude of different menus and dining concepts offered onboard by our airline customers, diverse menu designs and delivery to each airline customer’s specification is a testament to the skills of the Flight Catering teams.
