PETA is giving Jetstar a Proggy Award for being the Most Vegan-Friendly Airline in Australia!
Jetstar’s new menu includes two vegan options – SumoSalad’s Lentil & Tabbouleh Salad with Falafel and Mr Lee’s Noodles in the Zen Garden Vegetables variety. Yum!
Cruelty-free culture has taken off in Australia, and we applaud Jetstar for listening to its vegan customers.
Jetstar’s chief commercial officer, Catriona Larritt, explained that the menu changes are the airline’s way of responding to customer requests and said, “The feedback we were getting is that it can sometimes be hard to find vegan-friendly options while travelling.”
This marks the first time that vegans can purchase cruelty-free meals in-flight without having to pre-order them well in advance. The menu is now available on the airline’s international flights and will arrive on domestic flights in February.
Interest in vegan living has exploded in Australia over the past 12 months. According to Google Trends data, Australians searched online for the word “vegan” more than people in any other nation during 2017.
As well as sparing many animals daily suffering and a terrifying death, people who go vegan reduce their chances of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity.
Vegan meals are also better for the environment, as the meat industry is a leading producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Choosing vegan options when flying is a great way to help offset your carbon footprint.
There are so many great reasons to go vegan, and it’s never been easier to get started.
