FORMIA refreshes Mandarina Duck onboard Brussels Airlines

FORMIA, the international guest amenity and hospitality specialist, announces a fresh new look to the on-board amenity kit created for Brussels Airlines and featuring the well-known, luxury bag brand Mandarina Duck. Inspired from Mandarina Duck’s Tank Collections, the new design is introduced to the airline’s Business Class passengers. The Mandarina Duck Bag will be offered in a captivating red zip pouch piped design construction with a yellow rubber patch logo and contrasting yellow interior. The contents of the bag will be supplied by cosmetic brand Institut Karité, known for its Shea products, and will include items from their Verbana line. The updated design reflects Brussels Airline’s pursuit to offer an innovatively appealing product that enhances the passenger’s travelling experience.
