New crisp sandwich is favourite snack for Aer Lingus guests

Tuesday, 16th June 2015: Aer Lingus is delighted to report that the recent addition to its bia on board menu, the Tayto crisp sandwich is proving to be a real hit with guests, young and old. The new summer bia menu launched last week and includes the new crisp sandwich snack option which is available on short haul flights, including European destinations, departing from Belfast City Airport.

While Aer Lingus cabin crew report strong demand for the crisp sandwich on board, it has been particularly popular on Spanish routes including Malaga and Majorca where there are traditionally a lot of young families jetting off on summer holiday. UK routes too, most notably weekend flights, indicate a real taste for the Tayto crisp sandwich showing that it appeals to guests in their 20s, 30s and beyond.

Sinead O’Neill, Retail Manager, Aer Lingus commented, “We’re delighted with the initial reaction to the Tayto crisp sandwich coming on board. It’s fair to say the crisp sandwich has experienced a bit of a revival in recent months following a pop-up shop in Dublin as well as a dedicated crisp sandwich café opening in Belfast, so we recognised there was a definite demand for the product.

“Tayto crisps evoke a taste of home that we all know and love, stemming right back to childhood and there is a certain nostalgia associated with it. For this reason we made the decision to include it on our bia menu and we’re thrilled it has been so warmly received.”

Aer Lingus’ bia on board menu offers guests an extensive selection of snack options and drinks. Many of the fresh sandwiches and snacks have been created in collaboration with Irish TV chef Clodagh McKenna, containing the best ingredients sourced from all over our foodie island.

The Tayto crisp sandwich is available as part of the bia menu for £3 on short haul flights, including European destinations.
