The aircraft galley is the on-board compact kitchen on air-borne vessel. As galley equipment occupy minimum space and provide optimized facilities of kitchens by utilizing minimum space they are predominantly used on aircrafts. Aircraft galley equipment include various electric and non-electric inserts. Electric insert includes water boilers, coffee makers, beverage makers, chillers, air chillers, dishwasher, food warmers, and refrigeration system. Non- electric insert includes rack, serving pots, tray, trolley, dishes, utensils used for cooking, and trash compactor. Aircraft galley is used for cooking food and storing material related to kitchen. To provide better services to customers, aircraft service providers or manufacturers deploy galleys on aircrafts. These type of galley equipment are available on various type of aircrafts such as narrow-body, wide-body, and very large body.
