SIA transforms disused aircraft parts into bags and tags


Singapore Airlines has launched a Designed by Singapore Airlines collection featuring limited-edition aviation tags (pictured above) and bags.

The tags will feature SIA’s individual livery and serial numbers and will be made from the skin of three of its retired aircraft, the Airbus 380, Airbus A330-300 and Boeing 777-200. The labels will go on sale at SIA’s The Upcycling Project pop-up store at Design Orchard available through August 18, 2022 and will be priced at SG$78. Customers can pay SG$88 if they want to choose specific serial numbers.

The new carry bags are called the Lifesaver Zip Pouch, a pouch with a zipper and gusset, the Altitude Traveler Bag, a tote with top handles or a shoulder strap with versatile straps that comes with the bag, the Runway Shopper Bag, a roomy tote bag that comes with a hook closure to secure its contents, an interior side pocket and a red zipper made from the life jacket tab, and the Highflyer Messenger Bag, a bag with an interior laptop slot and several interior and exterior side pockets.

These bags will be available online on its e-commerce site in September.

The pop-up store features more than 40 products made from recycled aircraft parts and materials in conjunction with Singapore-based outlets.

These objects were exhibited on July 6.

The signature scent included floral notes of six flowers in SIA’s batik pattern: water ginger, common dianelle, seaside purslane, simpoh lak, utania nervosa and white kopsia.
