Singapore Airlines new menu hits the sweet spot
Singapore Airlines new menu, also available from 1st December 2020, on SilkAir flights, includes a wider range of main courses. The menu will be offered on flights under 3.5 hours except flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Medan. Travellers can look forward to a greater variety of local Singaporean and international favourites as part of the airline’s new Economy Class meal concept.
Singapore Airlines new menu, new presentation
Singaporean favourites such as congee, laksa and gravy-rich mee siam, previously not available in Economy Class feature in the line-up. More than 40 new dishes will be available on rotation on different flights. The meals will be served in an innovative leak-proof box and cup made of Forest Stewardship Council certified paper. The dessert box and a cutlery pack are made of bamboo with a paper wrap. These replace SIA’s current plastic casserole service ware.
The new box can hold the same amount of food as the casserole but is deeper and more secure, allowing it to retain gravy and soupy dishes without any seepage. It’s also oven-safe and resistant to overheating, ensuring that food quality is preserved even after reheating.
SIA and SATS, the Airline’s Singapore-based catering partner jointly developed the new meal concept. The process involved a study into potential pain points and areas for improvement in the short-haul in-flight experience. The research and development that followed, resulted in a versatile and eco-friendly box and enhance taste, variety and meal quality.
The new service ware reduces the amount of single-use plastics on the meal tray, including cups and polybags for cutlery by 80 per cent by weight. After use, these items will be brought back to Singapore, sent to an eco-digester at SATS, and converted into pellets. These pellets can be used as refuse-derived fuel, a source of energy that can replace fossil fuel and coal.
The onsite processing of waste gives an approximately 60% reduction of catering waste and further reduces incinerator emissions. The use of lighter paperware helps to reduce fuel consumption on flights as an added benefit.
Visitors to SIA’s Inside Singapore Airlines tours in November 2020 will be the first to preview the new meals, which will be served at the event. These tours offer the visitor a chance to go behind the scenes and into the SIA Training Centre. The exclusive guided tours includes activities and experiences for all ages. Try your luck for the remaining tours on 28th and 29th November 2020.
