Dear Jan

Do Microwave oven and Refrigeration Systems can be deployed in Commercial aircraft Pantry ?.


Yes, commercial aircraft where the first use of microwave ovens in the 1970's even before they where made available to the public.

Most of the food brought on aircraft are prepared by food catering services and do not require any refrigeration systems. Most chilling is done by a combination of ice, dry ice, and air conditioning. However, a few aircraft do have small refrigerators for wine and other small quantities of food. The same is true for small freezers.
