Your next flight with Singapore Airlines may just be a wellness experience with Como Shambhala. The two have recently announced a partnership for its co-developed in-flight meals, in a bid to introduce a healthier way to fly. The menu is targeted at relieving airplane travel-related stresses, by boosting your circulation and digestion while keeping your immune system in tip-top condition.
“This has been a fascinating project for us and we have carefully curated a menu that reflects our Como Shambhala brand ethos and approach to food – to inspire the palate with memorable flavours.”
And they certainly are memorable. Its September in-flight menu, for instance, features a breakfast of digestion-aiding and micronutrient-rich spiced buckwheat and pumpkin pancakes served with vanilla bean coconut yoghurt, toasted pumpkin seeds and strawberries and oranges, a main of coconut poached fish, and a dessert of fine-grained polenta cake made of dark chocolate, crystallised ginger and citrus-scented rhubarb.
Passengers also have the Book-a-Cook option where you can pre-order your meals from September to February 2020, with highlights such as the hearty red rice and fish porridge, lentil, zucchini and ricotta lasagne, as well as coconut and chia pudding. Complementing the nutrient-rich meals are wellness articles available on the SIA mobile app, to aid you with any in-flight discomfort, such as meditation, breathing techniques for relaxation, and body exercises.
The wellness menu is only available on First and Business Class on selected flights departing from Singapore to Hong Kong, Frankfurt, London, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. This announcement comes after a spate of new wellness initiatives from Singapore Airlines, including a partnership with US-based well expert Canyon Ranch.
