European low-cost carrier Jet2 announced a partnership with popular chicken restaurant Nando’s to sell its products on board. Cheeky.

However, if you’re expecting to tuck into full Portuguese chicken as you fly to Portugal itself, prepare to be disappointed. There are only two snack box options available, and neither contains chicken:

  • Peri-peri drizzled hummus and salted pita chips — £4
  • Half-popped corn — £1.50

The Yorkshire-based carrier, which has various operating bases across the UK including Belfast (BFS), East Midlands (EMA), London Stansted (STN), Leeds Bradford (LBA) and Newcastle (NCL), is known for its affordable flights to holiday destinations across Europe, as well as its brightly coloured planes and cabin interiors.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2, explained that Jet2 is the first UK airline to offer Nando’s as part of its in-flight menu, saying that these menu items will ‘delight customers even more’. While there’s no chicken, the upside is that some of these snack boxes will have vouchers for proper Nando’s restaurant meals on the ground.

While at least the hummus features the chain’s famous peri-peri sauce, the average Nando’s fan may be looking for a lot more than just some hummus and chips for a proper cheeky Nando’s on their next flight.
