Singapore Airlines is to introduce a paperless cabin by producing electronic versions of magazines on its KrisWorld inflight entertainment system.
The carrier has three inflight magazines:
- SilverKris – a travel magazine
- KrisShop – an inflight sales catalogue
- KrisWorld – inflight entertainment guide
The airline plans to reduce the amount of paper on board, saving weight, fuel and black ink rubbing off on fingers! Future plans will also include digital menus, international and local magazines, as well as e-newspapers and e-books.
So far SIA has equipped two Boeing 777-300ERs and two Airbus A380s with the latest Panasonic eX2™ inflight entertainment system and will roll the system out to the rest of its fleet.
