Green tea, chopsticks and Chinese delicacies such as stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken are now available onboard British Airways.

The airline announced on Feb 13 that it will provide a new series of onboard services with Chinese features on flights between China and London, as part of its efforts to attract more Chinese customers.

"Customers traveling from China can expect to enjoy Chinese delicacies such as stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken or Pork Wonton Soup with pak choi and noodles," said the company.

Menus will also come in Chinese.

British Airways executive vice president for China, Richard Tams said: "Following our customers' valuable feedback, we have added additional Chinese touches to our onboard services on flights to and from London to make them feel more at home while flying with us."

British Airways now has 17 weekly flights from China to London. Recently, it has boosted the network between China and the UK with a code-sharing agreement with China Eastern Airlines. British Airways customers flying to London and Europe from Kunming, Xian, Nanjing, Hangzhou and Chongqing can now fly on China Eastern Airlines with British Airways' flight numbers.
