The expansion of the menu was carried out within the framework of the new concept of economy class catering.
Singapore Airlines (SIA) and their subsidiary SilkAir will offer a wider variety of main meals on flights less than 3.5 hours from December 1.
The airline chefs have developed 40 new dishes, including Singaporean specialties: laksa soup, Siamese noodles with gravy and others.
In addition, SIA replaced its plastic tableware with a new eco-friendly set consisting of an airtight main course box, a paper cup, a dessert box and bamboo cutlery. They hold the same amount of food and are more durable, allowing gravies and soups to be stored without dripping. The set is heat-resistant, it can be heated in the oven.
The new catering concept was developed jointly by SIA and the Singapore-based catering company SATS.
SATS General Director of Nutrition, Kerry Mock, said: “We have taken into account the particulars of aircraft nutrition in developing eco-friendly packaging and are pleased to share our culinary experience and knowledge with SIA to make air travel even more comfortable.”
