At Economy Class and Beyond, we love a useful amenity kit. Well, Air France has updated theirs for its premium passengers. Let us investigate to see what’s inside.
And its possibilities for reuse.
Air France is offering its long-haul Business customers a new comfort kit. As part of an eco-responsible approach, this kit is the first model made up of 93% recycled material.
This kit features the company’s historic winged seahorse emblem, embodying its rich history. It comes in two colours, navy blue and grey.
What’s inside the business class kit? You’ll find A toothbrush and pen made of cornstarch, and earplugs packaged in kraft paper, eliminating the use of plastic.
Comfort is still there – with the large and soft sleep mask, socks, toothpaste and Clarins cosmetics are still included in the kit.
Meanwhile, in Premium Economy, there’s a product update too,
Customers travelling in the long-haul Premium Economy cabin will receive a dark blue kit with a sporty look. The kit features the accent, the symbol of the Air France brand, in a red or blue version.
The contents of this kit are similar it seems, with a toothbrush made of cornstarch, earplugs packaged in kraft paper and a sleep mask and a pair of socks.
Removing plastic through the cabin
Air France is progressing in its removal of plastic packaging, with the plastic packaging of each of these kits is now replaced by a tamper-evident seal.
In addition, headsets are systematically cleaned and disinfected, allowing Air France to eliminate single-use headphone protectors and their packaging offered previously.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The value of an amenity kit (to me) has is partially in the air – but mostly what I can do with it afterwards – be it regift it to someone or utilising it for other purposes (for example, I use the old United plastic net bags as great memory card storage, packing multiple phone cables, holding batteries or even socks (which means they’re all in one place on the outbound segment at least).
Air France is trying to make the same play here – with them noting passengers can be collected and taken home after the trip and used again.
The obvious play is to take one if you feel you can use the contents of the bag, then utilise the contents (either inflight or at home) and then the bag, then recycle as needed.
And that seems to be a good strategy for me – small bags are useful in my travels, as well as using the contents of the bag as needed.
