Paper Beats Plastic

Singapore Airlines


Singapore Airlines recently announced its new in-flight meal service concept in the Economy Class on certain routes. The airline has decided to stay away from plastic utensils. Instead, it has opted for paper boxes and containers, made with paper certified by the Forest Stewardshi­p Council. Plastic cutlery has also made way for bamboo cutlery. According to the airline, this will reduce single-use plastic usage on its flights by up to 80 per cent. Singapore Airlines partnered with its catering arm, SATS, to conceptual­ise this leak-proof, oven-friendly, and planetfrie­ndly service equipment. The changes will be seen on flights that last less than 3.5 hours. singaporea­
