Etihad Airways Inaugurates Sustainable Aircraft

Etihad Airways has inaugurated the 2020 ecoDemonstrator aircraft into commercial service. This was done during a special ceremony at the airline’s Abu Dhabi base. Prior to this, there was a series of test flights across the United States. The aircraft is a new Boeing 787-10 registered A6-BMI. It is the latest arrival to Etihad’s 39-strong fleet of 787 Dreamliners. Following this development, Etihad is now the world’s largest operator of the technologically advanced aircraft type.

The goal is to make commercial aviation more sustainable

As the 2020 ecoDemonstrator, Etihad’s 787 Dreamliner was used as a flying testbed to further technological developments. The goal is to make commercial aviation safer and more sustainable. Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said, “As the first 787-10 to take part in the ecoDemonstrator programme, this very special aircraft stands testament to the innovation and drive for sustainable aviation that forms a core element of Etihad’s values and long-term vision. This is in line with the tremendous strides being made by Abu Dhabi, and the UAE, in the research and development of viable solutions to combat climate change.”

To celebrate its launch into regular service, the aircraft has been fitted with a commemorative plaque highlighting its contribution to sustainability. It’s also adorned with Boeing logos, in addition to the words ‘From Abu Dhabi for the World’, a reimagined version of the airline’s famous tagline.
