The TajSATS, which is a joint venture of Taj (India's popular hotel resorts and palaces), and SATS (Singapore Airport Terminal Services) is a leading food caterer for airlines Vistara (a tie-up of TATA sons and Singapore Airlines), Air India, Jet Airways and many others.

"From the moment it is cooked till the moment it is served, there is a science behind the way airline food is prepared and presented to make sure the customer is happy", said Arun Batra, Executive Chef of TajSATS. TajSATS is known to prepare special dishes for their customers during festive seasons. The special cuisines include the native dishes of those regions.

Vistara Airlines, a consortium of Tata Sons and Singapore airlines, and a partner of the TaJSATS, is serving delicious Onam Sadhya to their customers on board in the air.
