Etihad makes flying greener with EY20 Sustainable Flight from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi, Oct. 23

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, welcomed travelers Oct. 23 to its EY20 Sustainable Flight from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi. The event celebrated the latest anniversary of the Etihad Greenliner Programme.

The Etihad Greenliner Programme – now two years old following its inception in 2019 – uses Etihad’s Boeing 787 fleet as a test bed for sustainability improvements in partnership with organisations across the aviation industry. In October 2019, Etihad and Boeing signed a landmark agreement, pledging to work collaboratively on sustainable aviation solutions in both the R&D domain and regular commercial flights. Since 2019, the two companies have collaborated on inflight product, airspace management, flight deck tools, and sustainable fuel, and even brought NASA experts to look at noise levels created by aircraft as part of Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator programme.
