Singapore Airlines Gives The Gift of Origami!


Decorated with the iconic Singapore Airlines batik print, the new ‘Inflight Skills’ package from SIA introduces their passengers to the ancient Asian art of paper folding; Origami!

The launch of Singapore Airlines new ‘Inflight Skills’ programme perfectly coincides with the up and coming October half term, promising to keep the whole family entertained during a long-haul flight. Specially designed and sustainably produced, these origami how-to kits contain a step-by-step guide to five creations including a bird, plane, fortune teller, a box and a box lid.

With the growing trend of adult arts and crafts, such as the popular colouring books promoted for adults to destress, Singapore Airlines’ new ‘Inflight Skills’ initiative adopts this popular trend. However, on top of this, it also makes strong cultural links to the airlines’ heritage therefore encouraging the whole of their family passengers, children and adults alike, in sharing a fully creative and informative experience.

Families will be able to collect their kits ahead of boarding, and follow the tutorial video, created by the airline, alongside the how-to kits with leading origami influencer, Red Ted Art – available on YouTube

As part of the airlines’ ongoing commitment to enhancing its world-class offering for families, the initiative will be provided alongside existing amenities including Singapore Airlines’ range of exclusive toys and games, the ‘Child Meal’ programme and ‘Young Ones’ entertainment on the KrisWorld Inflight Entertainment System.

Singapore Airlines’ General Manager for the UK and Ireland, Sheldon Hee said: “We are very excited to launch the Singapore Airlines Inflight Skills initiative. It is the perfect opportunity for families to engage in a new activity during their flight with us. Our aim is to make every journey personal for our passengers, be it fun or educational, and we hope our passengers will enjoy learning a new skill and have fun at the same time.”
