The airport chooses only one brand of chips

Kazan Gabdulla Tukay Airport is investing 7.5 million rubles in the purchase of juices, soda, mineral water, tea and chips. In total, the list includes more than 32 different purchase positions. However, the air harbor does not specify exactly what quantity of goods they need. Everything will be purchased as the necessity arises.

The list of sodas includes the following drinks:

  • Evervess Cola;
  • Frustyle Lemon-lime;
  • Frustyle Apelsin;
  • Evervess Apelsin;
  • Legenda Baikala;
  • Adrenaline Rush;

  • J7 juice;
  • J7 nectar;
  • I juice;
  • I nectar;
  • Lyubimyi juice-containing drink;
  • Lyubimyi 100% juice.

If there is a wide variety of drinks, then the choice of chips is quite modest. At the airport, they want to see only one specific brand, and that's Leys chips.

How dispensers with free water disappeared at the airport in March

In March of this year, it became known that dispensers with drinking water disappeared on the territory of the Kazan International Airport named after G. Tykay. Previously, they could be seen in secluded places at the entrance to the waiting room: they stood either somewhere on the side when moving from one terminal to another, or somewhere in a secluded place of the waiting room.

As one of the top managers of Kazan Airport explained, they had dispensers with Raifa Spring water, but during the Hajj, Muslims complained that they could not drink this water for their religious beliefs, said the representative of the airport. According to him, one of the pilgrims allegedly wrote a complaint to the management of Kazan Airport, demanding that free halal water appear in the air harbor instead of or together with Raifskaya water. As a result, the administration met their wishes and removed all dispensers with cylinders of Raifa Spring from the territory of the airport complex.

However, free halal water never appeared either. The representative of Kazan Airport, in a conversation with the correspondent of Realnoe Vremya, made it clear that now it is better for believers to buy the water themselves and at their own expense that meets their religious beliefs. Later, the airport's press service denied the incident, saying that this case was in the distant 1990s. However, it should be added that the trademark Raifa Spring was registered only in 2005.
