Air Culinaire delivers a view to 'dine' for at The Landing
The company's first London-based hotel kitchen will serve up great British classic cuisine and afternoon teas adjacent to Biggin Hill airport's runway.
Air Culinaire has opened an owned-and-operated kitchen at London Biggin Hill airport.

London Biggin Hill airport's boutique hotel The Landing has partnered with in-flight catering company Air Culinaire Worldwide to provide a world-class kitchen and dining offering at the new on-airport landmark location.

Hotel guests, and those who visit The Approach bar and restaurant, will now be able to enjoy Air Culinaire Worldwide's premium cuisine on the ground with a spectacular view of the iconic airport's runway. This will be the first hotel kitchen that Air Culinaire will be running in London.

The menu will include a selection of great British classics as well as a seasonal dishes that offer exceptional quality from the new brigade of chefs. Guests will be able to relax and unwind in the new bar after a busy day, or meet friends, family or colleagues for drinks and signature cocktails.

Guests looking for something truly special can join the team for a delicious aviation themed Traditional or Champagne Afternoon Tea, with views over London Biggin Hill airport itself.

The Landing hotel general manager Steven Thorne-Farrar says: “London Biggin Hill has a long-standing relationship with Air Culinaire Worldwide, who provide world-class in-flight catering experiences for our business aviation customers. We are delighted to partner with the team to provide this same high-quality dining experience for our hotel guests, visitors and our local community. We can't wait to share our new menus, including locally sourced produce, and welcome our first guests early next year.”

“As a critical service company based at the airport for many years, we are extremely pleased to be working with Steven and his team on this project. The kitchen creates a wonderful working environment for our staff, which will be reflected in the service provided to the guests of the hotel, flight crew and passengers,” says Air Culinaire SVP global sales and marketing Paul Schweitzer.
