The move aims to provide light and healthy meals for the crew members along with a homely (Indian) feeling. The special low-fat diet meal for the crew members will be worked out on day-wise basis, the airline said.
As per General Manager Catering, initially the change in food menu will be introduced only on Ex-Delhi/Mumbai flights. The changes will come into effect from 15 September midnight on all domestic and international flights.
The low-diet food is applicable for all flying crew i.e cockpit (pilot) and cabin crew, the airline said.
The new menu will be also cost effective, the airline said.
The World Health Organization (WHO), too, blames unhealthy diet as a potential factor for increasing instances of high blood pressure, increase in blood glucose, elevated blood lipids and obesity.
