When it comes to the resources we use, we care about every stage of the journey. From how raw materials are produced, to how we recycle waste products, we are constantly improving our operations and procedures.
Plastic is versatile, cost-effective and light, which is useful for the aviation industry because the reduction of in-flight weight leads to less fuel use and carbon emissions. However, plastics take a long time to degrade and are clearly harmful to the environment if treated irresponsibly.
That’s why we’re committed to decreasing the amount of plastic waste we generate. Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the sustainable changes we’ve made on board, and explore our YouTube playlist to stay up-to-date on our journey towards a greener future.
