Etihad Airways commits to reduce single-use plastics

Published on : Monday, March 9, 2020

Etihad Airways performed a spectacular flyover at Yas Marina CircuitThe airline operated a Boeing 787-9 biofuel flight from Abu Dhabi to Amsterdam in January 2019, representing the maiden flight of an aircraft partly powered by fuel derived from the seeds of the Salicornia plant. This was followed in April by a single-use plastic-free flight between Abu Dhabi and Brisbane. Etihad used the event to make a commitment to reduce single-use plastics company-wide by 80 per cent by 2022.

 

 

 

In November, Etihad and Boeing launched a first-of-its-kind ‘eco partnership’ known as the Greenliner programme. The initiative kicked off with the arrival of a specially-themed flagship Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner which will be used, along with other aircraft in the 787 fleet, and together with industry partners, to test products, procedures and initiatives designed to reduce carbon emissions.

 

In December, Etihad Airways became the first airline globally to secure funding for a project based on its compatibility with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Through a partnership with First Abu Dhabi Bank and Abu Dhabi Global Market, the airline is borrowing 100 million Euros (AED 404.2 million) to expand the Etihad Eco-Residence, a sustainable apartment complex for its cabin crew.
