Rhubarb partners with American Airlines at Heathrow Airport

Event and restaurant caterer Rhubarb has secured a contract with American Airlines to cater and service the new arrivals lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3.

The deal follows a multi-million pound investment from the airline and will see Rhubarb provide breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, buffet and à la carte options.

Rhubarb will use British-sourced ingredients where possible and will offer a seasonal menu, alternating every four weeks.

Current dishes include eggs benedict with York ham; superfood salad with broad beans, avocado, pomegranate and organic seeds; and mango and lemon poached chicken with lemon thyme scented couscous.

Rhubarb has also been appointed to run the American Airlines Heathrow Terminal 3 flagship first class lounge alongside its existing catering offering.

Martyn Barrett, director of travel at Rhubarb, said: "We are incredibly proud to continue our long standing relationship with American Airlines, having first provided food for its first and business class lounges in 2009.

"Being chosen for the new arrivals lounge is a testament to the work we do every day across our portfolio. We look forward to working with the American Airlines' team and to bringing a first class service to a first class lounge."

The new lounge menu will be exclusively available on a complimentary basis to oneworld first and business class travellers, American Airlines executive platinum members and oneworld emerald members, landing in London Heathrow Terminal 3.

Rhubarb operates in a number of visitor attractions across the capital including the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, the Royal Albert Hall, Saatchi Gallery, Heathrow Terminal 3 and Terminal 5, London City Airport and Royal Ascot Racecourse.

The group recently won a £60m contract for the catering operation at the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex.
