Passengers using the airport’s private VIP facility will soon be dining on award-winning cuisine after the announcement of a new collaboration with British Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton.

The luxury service, which is only available to passengers travelling in first class or business, will offer a range of dishes inspired by Atherton’s menus at his world-renowned restaurants including Pollen Street Social and Berners Tavern. The menu will be updated on a monthly basis, with those travelling this June set to enjoy a selection of mouth-watering canapés, followed by a Berners Tavern summer salad starter and a roasted stone bass, caramelised cauliflower, fennel and cockle velouté main course, inspired by food from the delectable Berners Tavern. For dessert, passengers can tuck into a French meringue, fresh berry compote and strawberry sorbet.

Jason said: “Having experienced the Heathrow VIP offering first hand, I’ve always been impressed with how the service transforms the way you travel and so I was delighted to help make the dining experience a true occasion for passengers. With the help of my team and the Heathrow VIP chefs, we’ve created a range of exciting dishes to suit even the most experienced palate; we hope this will enhance the premium experience when travelling through the VIP suite at Heathrow.”

John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow’s Chief Executive Officer, added: “I can still remember the first time I ate in one of Jason’s restaurants – I went straight out and bought his recipe book so that I could try them out at home. I am thrilled that our VIP passengers can experience the real thing, the very best in British cuisine, when they travel through Heathrow. From the minute a passenger arrives, to the moment they board their flight, Heathrow’s VIP experience offers a seamless, private and luxurious journey through the airport – now complemented with the culinary masterpieces from the brilliant Jason Atherton.”
