Did you know...

We were the first international airline to procure Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Japan? 

On 25 October 2022, we operated a flight from Tokyo to Abu Dhabi using a 40% blend of SAF supplied by ITOCHU Corporation and NESTE. 

It represented the first delivery of 50,000 gallons of SAF, entirely produced in Japan, which will be used to fuel our aircraft over the coming weeks.

NetZero is closer than you think

We’ve partnered with World Energy to make carbon-neutral flying possible.

On 13 November, we’ll fly our first net zero carbon flight from Washington to Sharm-El-Sheik for COP27. That’s 10,000km emission-free.

From Abu Dhabi for the world

You shouldn’t have to choose between travel and planet Earth. And neither should the generations after us.  

That’s why we’re exploring new options for green aviation, investing in new technologies to reduce the impact that flying has on the planet.

Together with our partners from across the industry, we’re making changes today for a better world tomorrow.

Join us on our most important journey yet; from Abu Dhabi for the world.

What is green aviation?

Green aviation is all about lessening the environmental impact of flying. It’s a term that’s used to describe the innovation and technology that goes into making our flights more efficient by reducing emissions, fuel consumption and noise.
