Finally, Italian-Japanese design firm Nendo will oversee the design of new tableware for on-board meals, scheduled for gradual introduction from spring 2024. Efforts have been made to reduce the use of products plastics, with a transition from disposable containers and lids to materials such as paper or 100% recycled plastic. To further strengthen these initiatives, 100% plant-based materials will be adopted for reusable tableware and for bags used to package cutlery.
