Icelandair names its aircraft after local volcanoes and natural phenomena, and now it’s time to celebrate Icelandic wildlife with new, eco-friendly amenity kits designed to enhance the onboard experience.
Kit Design. In April, Icelandair launches its new “Dýralíf” (Wildife) amenity kit collection, with four purse designs that celebrate Iceland’s unique natural inhabitants.
Icelandair collaborated with design company International and skincare company Hannes Dóttir to produce a collection that draws inspiration from animals woven into the nation’s folklore, namely the puffin, arctic fox, Icelandic horse and raven.
The contents of each kit have been designed and selected to help passengers arrive at their destination rested and refreshed.
Each kit comes in an animal-inspired purse that is perfect to keep and reuse. The kit contains the following:
- skincare products from Hannes Dóttir
- dental kit (toothbrush and toothpaste)
- stickers for use by passengers if they don’t wish to be disturbed
- fun educational facts about each Icelandic animal
Each purse is made from a combination of eco-friendly and sustainable materials including recycled canvas, vegan leather, and felt made from recycled plastic bottles.
The toothbrush is made from cornstarch-based biodegradable material. The socks are made from recycled material.
Plastic use is minimal, with content wrappings made from paper.
The complimentary amenity kits are issued to Saga Premium passengers on all flights between Iceland and North America.
Launching in 2019 are kits inspired by the puffin and arctic fox; in 2020, the Icelandic horse and raven step into the spotlight.
