Etihad’s emission elimination

Etihad Airways has revealed that in 2017, it eliminated around 195,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions because of a wide range of fuel-saving initiatives across its network.

The airline was able to reduce the amount of fuel consumed by its aircraft by over 62,000 tonnes of fuel.

The result represents a 3.3% improvement from the year before, and is the equivalent of 850 flights between Abu Dhabi and London.

Ahmed Al Qubaisi, senior vice president Government and International Affairs for Etihad Aviation Group says the airline places a high value on sustainability and is always looking for new opportunities to reduce its carbon footprint.

‘This result is a testament to the focused collaboration of teams across our business as well as strong cooperation with important local and international partners in Abu Dhabi and across our network.’
