Turkish Airlines now presents healthy beverages for air travel

As one of the leading airline companies at inflight catering, Turkish Airlines now presents the new variety of healthy beverages for its passengers.

The recipes of the healthy beverages have been developed by Dr.Ender Saraç and are being produced by THY DO&CO.
The effects of stress, indigestion and insomnia that air travelers often experience are aimed to be reduced with the help of these healthy beverages.

What sort of beverage menus can our passengers expect to see?
There are hot and cold herbal teas in our selections as well as a specially developed drink for children. The beverage menu is planned to be updated every three months according to the seasons and other needs. Some special beverages will be served in special periods like RAMADAN. These beverages will aid in reducing the discomfort after IFTAR (fast- breaking) and will be offered during the flights which coincide with iftar times.

Our cinnamon and vinegar tea is going to relieve the indigestion of our passengers which is often experienced after iftar and our tamarind tea will make them feel cool and refreshed.

What are the benefits of the children’s beverages?
For children a special drink is prepared including no preservatives, no artificial coloring, no sugar, no acid and no corn syrup. It is both delicious and healthy. It consists of carob powder, bitter cocoa and date syrup mixed with natural fresh milk. This drink strengthens the bones, aids growth and contains proteins as well as minerals like iron and calcium.
