Delta adds luxury and removes plastics for new amenity kits

0
Delta is set to launch a new range of in-flight amenity kits this month, developed with Buzz Products with a general theme of reducing environmental waste such as single-use plastics.
The kits will be rolled out across every cabin class. In Delta One – as well as more than 50 Delta Sky Clubs later this year – the airline has commissioned fragrance brand Le Labo to create basil-scented formulas from its plant-based body, hair and face collection. These products from the New York-based brand will be offered within the new TUMI-branded amenity kits in Delta One this month, but something that won’t be found within is plastic wrapping.

This move is part of the airline’s work to reduce single-use plastics, and Delta estimates that by removing plastic bags from the TUMI kits, it will divert 30,951 pounds of plastic from landfills in just the first year. According to the airline, that saving is equivalent to the weight of one Delta CRJ-200 jet.

Many items can be found in the new Delta One amenity kits – but not single-use plastic

The new kits are not just for Delta One flyers, as the airline is also introducing redesigned amenity kits for Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin long-haul customers. The Main Cabin and Delta Comfort+ kits now include packaging sourced from customer photos, featuring real snapshots from around the globe curated through the airline’s #SkyMilesLife social media content.

“Every detail has been thoughtfully designed with customers’ needs in mind,” stated Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta’s director of onboard product and customer eExperience. “From a rejuvenating lineup of skin care products to help customers decompress, to small touches like a new hand cleansing towelette — these updates are a direct result of listening to our customers to understand what they value most and what would make their in-flight experience even better.”

Here’s a sneak peek at what customers can look forward to in Delta’s refreshed amenity kits:
