Travel company United Airlines recently announced its Flight Plan 2020, a strategy for next year which includes the addition of new vegan in-flight meal options.

According to CNBC, the carrier aims to keep up with evolving customer demands by “focusing heavily on plant-based options,” which United Executive Chef Gerry Gulli revealed will include red beet hummus with roasted vegetables; roasted curry cauliflower with whipped hummus and pomegranate; and vegan stuffed grape leaf with dolma-infused yogurt.

United is the only airline that operates its own kitchen and serves approximately 55 million meals annually. Gulli joined United in 1985 when all meals were frozen and its produce suppliers were limited. “Back then I didn’t think the meal service would ever be where it is now,” Gulli said. “Travelers wanted to get from point A to point B. Now cable TV and the Food Network have put excitement into food and made it fun. A lot of our customers are very food savvy.”

In July, United Airlines joined a growing list of companies to cut ties with SeaWorld by removing all mentions of the troubled marine park from its United Vacations website.
