Does Anyone Choose An Airline Based on a Cookie?
Yes! We do! But not just any cookie…
Every day the Flight Kitchen at Air North, Yukon’s Airline, is busy baking fresh muffins and cookies (more on those in a moment), making sandwiches and creating other meals served in-flight. From the delicious deli trays to the sandwiches made with fresh-baked bread, passengers enjoy tasty light meals that are all part of the service.
Did you know that you can even buy cheesecakes and frozen meals made by the team at outlets in Whitehorse?
But by far the most popular treats are those cookies. Warm, soft, gooey….what’s not to love? Anyone who’s flown on Air North knows exactly what we’re talking about….that moment when you smell the delicious aroma wafting through the cabin and you know you’re in for a treat.
We got to wondering...what’s the story behind those legendary cookies?
The original idea came from Deb Ryan, Manager, Strategic Planning & Alliances, who had worked with Princess Cruises early in her career. At the time they offered a warm cookie service on the Fairweather between Juneau and Skagway, Alaska, making a dreary day on the Lynn Canal that much brighter.
In 2010, testing began to create the perfect cookie and to make sure they could be effectively warmed and served (who wants a cold cookie?). After rave reviews from passengers, it became a standard part of the in-flight service. And we’re very happy that they did.
The cookies are often the subject of passenger feedback and some even ask flight attendants to wake them up to make sure they don’t miss the cookies!
If you haven’t had the chance to savour one of these delectable morsels yet, make sure you choose Air North for your next flight to the Yukon and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about.
