Emirates Flight Catering provides in-flight catering and support services to over 100 airlines across the globe from its catering units at Dubai International Airport.
All airline and airport production, operational and supply chain processes are now consolidated in the EKFC East Wing and EKFC West Wing facilities (formerly known as EKFC 1 & EKFC 3).
Combined, the units make up a truly impressive facility. They span 174,000 square metres and incorporate the highest level of automation available to airline catering facilities, including a 4.2km-long electric monorail which transports meal carts, and a 2.4km-long conveyor system for transferring clean items from the equipment cleaning area to the production kitchen for food plating and then on to the operational areas for flight packing. The facilities also feature a vacuum waste system with pipes over 600 metres in length. Both facilities feature the latest systems in hygiene, energy saving and automated food production equipment.
The technologically advanced catering facility, EKFC West Wing, is the brand new premium facility that is dedicated to all Emirates Premium Class servicing, for over 250 flights per day. Furthermore, EKFC West Wing provides over 10,000 meals per day for the airport lounges, which requires an average of 6 tonnes of raw materials per day.
