On 23 October 2021, Etihad Airways operated a special sustainable flight onboard its Boeing B787-10 “Greenliner” from London to Abu Dhabi.

It’s more likely, an iceberg. Few improvements can be seen onboard. The rest of the effort is hidden in technical data. The flight demonstrates several initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions including using no plastic in-flight products, coordination with air traffic control for optimized flight routing, use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), contrail avoidance technology and airport handling processes.

The flight was able to perform continuous ascent and descent from both London and Abu Dhabi to reduce flight time and emission. After landing, the flight was powered by one engine only in Abu Dhabi. At the end of the flight, Famous Aviation Geek, Sam Chui did an interview with the pilot on the technology deployed, and coordinated with ANSP and other industry stakeholders.

Etihad is looking forward to introducing these modifications to more and more aircraft to promote and implement sustainable flying.
