Can I have more than one caterer for a station?

Sometimes, having more than one caterer for a single station is necessary to provide a complete solution. This is easily accomplished in the Paxia Catering Management solution with a few basic steps.

  • You can set up multiple caterers for a single station, with only one as the default caterer.
  • Our catering management platform supports having unique caterers to fully cater certain flights based on specific parameters, while another caterer handles a full service of a different set of flights within the same station.
  • The Paxia Catering Management solution also supports having multiple caterers to cater portions of the same flight, with each caterer providing different services on the same flight.
