EasyJet, a low-cost airline based in Luton, has confirmed that reusable cutlery and travel mugs will soon be provided to pilots and cabin crew as part of their uniform allowance.

By the end of January 2024, EasyJet crew members will receive about 14,000 travel mugs and sets of cutlery as part of the airline’s efforts to decrease the use of single-use plastics.

After a trial earlier this year, the cutlery and reusable mug will be provided to newly hired pilots and cabin crew as part of their initial uniform allocation starting next year.

The reusable items will be distributed to crew members in the UK, Switzerland, and the rest of the European Union. This will enable EasyJet to reduce the amount of single-use items it uses annually by up to 10 million, or 71 million tonnes.

“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,” commented Angela Mullen, EasyJet’s head of inflight retail operations.

“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.”

Customers on short-haul flights were given plastic reusable cups by German flag carrier Lufthansa earlier this year to use for hot beverages they have purchased. The cabin crew then gathers the cup before the flight ends so it can be used again and again.

Customers can still purchase hot beverages from EasyJet in single-use paper cups in addition to plastic bottles of wine, juice, and water.
