Singapore Airlines (SIA) has introduced a new culinary programme that is designed to cater to the needs of health-conscious travellers. The “Deliciously Wholesome” meals will consist of a range of new dishes that are rich in nutrients, vitamins and essential minerals. Several have been designed by SIA’s International Culinary Panel, which consists of eight acclaimed chefs including Alfred Portale, Carlo Cracco and Georges Blanc.

A selection of main courses will also be made available for pre-ordering by Suites, first, and business class customers via the airline’s “Book the Cook” service. Meat-free options will also be provided.

The dishes also contain special active micronutrients which can help alleviate travel-induced stresses such as dehydration, fatigue and jetlag.” For more information, visit singaporeair.com Clement Huang
