Bottega Spa has introduced 20cl bottles of its Bottega Gold and Bottega Rose Gold to 13 airlines this year, bringing its total number of airline listings up to 27.
Bottega’s small format bottles have also been taken on by several rail operators in 2018, including Virgin Trains, Great Western, Rail Gourmet Retail and Serco Caledonian Sleepers in the UK and TGV in France.
Sandro Bottega, owner and managing director of Bottega Spa, said: “Our 20cl bottles are proving a valuable addition to our range. They tap into the increasing trend for ‘treating’ and ‘instant gratification’ and have particular appeal to the all-important millennial consumer. They are of course ideally suited for the travel market as they are easy to handle and serve on board and are perfect for passengers looking for a single serving of Prosecco.”
The latest listings are:
• Bottega Rose Gold 20cl available on board easyJet • Bottega Rose Gold 20cl available on board Vueling • Bottega Gold 20cl available on board Air Iceland Connect • Bottega Gold 20cl available to buy on board XL Airways – the first time Bottega has been listed on a French airline • Bottega Gold and Bottega Rose Gold 20cl available on board Ukrainian airline Bravo Airways • Bottega Gold 20cl available on board Aegean Airlines • Bottega Gold 20cl available on board Virgin Australia • Bottega Gold 20cl available on board Canadian Flair Air • Bottega Gold 20cl and Bottega Rose Gold 20cl available on board WOW Air • Bottega Prosecco ‘Glamour set’ – containing two mini Prosecco bottles – available on board Far Eastern Transport, Jet Airways India, Air Macau and Alitalia (special offer for Christmas)

Prosecco has seen a rapid rise in popularity across the world over the last 10 years, paving the way to increased consumption of Italian sparkling wines both at home and while travelling.
