easyJet pilots and crew switch to 100% reusable cutlery and cups to eliminate unnecessary waste

easyJet is providing reusable cutlery and cups for its crew inflight to stop unnecessary waste from single use plastics and disposable wooden cutlery, as it continues to trial sustainability initiatives.

In an industry-first and following a successful trial, easyJet is equipping all 14,000 of its crew (pilots and cabin crew) with reusable cups and cutlery in a mission to cut down on disposable single use items. In total, the initiative is expected to prevent more than 10 million single use items from being used per year and forms part of easyJet’s ongoing commitment to lower the impact of its operations.

The new reusable cups and cutlery are made from durable materials, so they are built to last to ensure easyJet’s crew can reuse time and time again. All crew will receive their new cups and cutlery sets over the coming weeks, with the roll out to be completed by January 2024. All new pilots and cabin crew will receive a cup and cutlery set as part of their new entrant uniform allocation.

“As always, our brilliant crew took this trial under their wings and through their passion and dedication to reduce unnecessary waste, we are now able to roll out this fantastic initiative network-wide,” said Angela Mullen, Head of Inflight Retail Operations, easyJet. “This is just one of the many ways we’re working to lower the impact of our operations and we’ll continue to trial new initiatives and make continuous improvements to help accomplish this goal.”
