Singapore Airlines gets crafty with its IFE


Ahead of the October half-term school holidays, Singapore Airlines (SIA) is launching Inflight Skills, an origami kit that can help 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 sustainably produced origami how-to kits.

The origami kit contains a step-by-step guide to five creations (a bird, a simple paper plane, a fortune teller, a more challenging box, and indeed a box lid), all featuring the iconic Singapore Airlines batik print.

The kits will be provided alongside existing child-friendly amenities, including Singapore Airlines’ range of exclusive toys and games, the ‘Child Meal’ programme and ‘Young Ones’ entertainment on the KrisWorld IFE 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 on YouTube.
