Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Como Shambhala have unveiled a new health-focused inflight menu that will be available on select flights starting this month.

The pair first announced their partnership and plans to introduce healthy additions to the carrier’s in-flight menu in March this year.

SIA says that the new menu will “nourish the body and alleviate travel-induced stresses such as fatigue”.

First and business class passengers will be able to enjoy the menu on select flights departing Singapore to Hong Kong, Frankfurt, London, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The dishes will also be available for pre-ordering through the airline’s ‘Book the Cook’ service which allows passengers travelling in First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy to pre-order main courses.

The airline says that in addition to the new health-focused dishes, it also launched a series of wellness articles in partnership with Como Shambhala this month. These articles cover topics such as meditation, breathing techniques for relaxation, and body exercises suitable for periods of prolonged inactivity. They are available for download on the SIA mobile app.

Como Shambhala is a spa and wellness brand that operates hotels under its Como Hotels and Resorts arm. Its flagship property is the Bali-based Como Shambhala Estate. The group also has urban resorts in London, Miami and Bangkok.
