FANS of a cheeky Nando's can now get their fix thousands of feet in the air as Jet2 became the first UK airline to serve food from the Afro-Portuguese eatery.

Launching just in time for Summer, Jet2 has added to their in-flight menu Nando’s PERi–PERi Flight Bites - two snacks infused with Southern African PERi–PERi spice.

Options include a dip, drizzle and dunk ‘Nando’s Box’ which includes creamy houmous, smoky PERi–PERi drizzle and lightly salted pitta chips or Nando’s half-popped corn - described as a 'mild and delicious' option including fluffy popcorn and crunchy corn.

Vouchers for the restaurant can also be found in selected Nando’s Boxes onboard entitling one person to a free Nando’s meal.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “The addition of these two fantastic snacking options give our customers even more great choice than ever, and mean that we are the first UK airline to offer Nando’s products on our In-Flight menu.

"We pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service in every area, which was recognised at the recent TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for airlines where we won five awards."

The news follows the introduction of the first in-flight vegan meal to the airline's menus earlier this year as well as vegan and gluten free ‘Gnaw’ chocolate bar.
