Master origami with Singapore Airlines’ new ‘Inflight Skills’ initiative

New family-focused offering helps passengers learn a new skill whilst onboard their flight…

Ahead of the October half-term, Singapore Airlines (SIA) is launching ‘Inflight Skills’ to keep the whole family entertained during a long-haul flight. Customers will be able to learn the ancient Asian art of paper folding and decoration, with specially designed and sustainably produced origami how-to kits.

Featuring the iconic Singapore Airlines batik print, the ‘Inflight Skills’ origami kit contains a step-by-step guide to five creations, from a simple paper plane to a more challenging batik print box: 

– A Bird

– A Plane

– A Fortune Teller

– A Box and because we like to do things in full;

– A Box Lid 

The ‘Inflight Skills’ initiative is part of the airline’s ongoing commitment to enhancing its world-class offering for families. It 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. 

Passengers will be able to collect their kits ahead of boarding, either at the departure gate at London Heathrow or at check-in at Manchester Airport. Singapore Airlines has also created a tutorial video alongside the how-to kits with leading origami influencer, Red Ted Art – available to download from YouTube.

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.”
