Introducing Biodegradable Cutlery On Board Our Flights

27 June, 2019

In its search for eco-friendly onboard products, Icelandair has partnered with Kaelis to develop the perfect set of cutlery for onboard meals: the cutlery is biodegradable, and the packaging is too! 

We are one of the first airlines to adopt eco-friendly cutlery before the European ban on single-use plastics comes into place in 2021. The new cutlery set will start flying on Icelandair flights in the next couple of months.

These utensils are durable and suitable for hot and cold contents. Even better, they do not end up in landfill, due to their biodegradable nature. The cutlery, the toothpick and the packaging are made of cornstarch.

Cornstarch products produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional plastics over their lifetime. There is no net increase in carbon dioxide when they break down, because the plants that they are made of also absorb the same amount of carbon dioxide as they grow. Additionally, cornstarch products do not produce toxic fumes if incinerated.

This development is part of a series of environmental policies being put in place by Icelandair, on board aircraft, in its company operations, and in its workplaces.
