In-flight boxes ticked


Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has recently introduced a new food box made of the folding box board Incada.

Outlining the important factors in selecting packaging for inflight meals, Gustaf Öholm, Senior Manager, Onboard Concepts, Services & Sales at SAS, said: “The packaging must have low weight, present the food well and feel good in the hand. It must be easy to open and of course it must preserve the intentions of our kitchen up until the food reaches the passenger.”
The airline’s previous solution was not good enough and SAS therefore decided to develop a new form of food packaging that could live up to the many quality and visual demands. Important parameters included the feel of the material, the surface coating and the ability to colour the material.
