What do we know about Air India’s carbonated drinks?
Here’s what we know: Carbonated drinks have become increasingly popular in India, with airlines in particular offering the drinks on board and airlines selling them in grocery stores.
But the beverage industry is facing increasing pressure to compete with the growing popularity of bottled water, which has taken off in recent years and has been dubbed the ‘new carbonated beverage’.
Caronators are also on the rise, with the Coca Cola Company announcing in October that it will start selling its CO2-neutral Coke Zero at a special price point on its flights.
Air India says the carbonated drink is a “natural, non-toxic and non-poisonous alternative to water”.
It says the drinks are “sustainable” and can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
The drinks are also available on some flights.
The company says the beverage has been approved by the ministry of environment, forest and climate change for use on commercial flights.
But Air India said the product will be available on its commercial flights from December 2019.
