Thai Airways International's Halal Kitchen now Fully Certified

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Tuesday, 5 February 2008

Responding to growing demand from thousands of Muslim travelers every day, Thai Airways International has signed an MoU with the Islamic Committee of Samut Prakarn Province to receive permission for usage of the Halal Logo by the Central Islamic Committee of Thailand.

This means that Thai Airways International’s “Halal” kitchen is now fully certified to ensure conformity with the permissible dietary requirements under Islamic law. “Halal” food has to meet regulatory standards at every step from purchasing to production and preparation.

The “Halal” kitchen set up by Thai Catering Services operates as an entirely separate unit from the regular catering facility at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. The kitchen earlier received the Halal Food Certificate from the Institute for Halal Food Standard of Thailand (Halal Thai), on 1 January 2008.

Thai flies daily to numerous cities in countries with large Islamic populations, such as the UAE, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Oman, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam and numerous destinations in India. In addition to the demand from Muslim passengers, Thai also provides meals for 10 customer airlines, which are national carriers of Islamic-majority countries. Total demand is for an estimated 5,000 Halal meals per day, with more growth projected in future.

Thai’s Halal Kitchen has received ISO9002 certification, guaranteeing cleanliness and safety of materials used and is also certified for HALAL Good Manufacturing Practice or GMP, Hazard Analysis and Critical Central Point or HACCP from the scientific center of Chulalongkorn University, which acted as the consultant of Halal Kitchen. Thai’s Halal Kitchen has also been inspected by the Central Islamic Committee of Thailand.

Although the facility is presently available for flights operating out of Suvarnabhumi Airport, there are plans in future to extend it to Thai’s Catering at Don Mueang Airport to serve passengers travelling on domestic flights.
