Turkish Airlines gets new themed aircraft

Turkish Airlines recently introduced a special design element adorned with leaves on its Airbus 321 type TC-JSU tail numbered aircraft, which was used for its environmentally-friendly fuel operation. The global carrier operated its first flight with the new themed aircraft, flight TK1795, to Stockholm. In line with efforts to lead towards widespread use of environmentally friendly fuel, the flight used biofuel during its operation and was also undertaken with the zero-waste principle.

In addition to providing information on sustainability actions with the Green Class concept of this first flight, the airline also took new environmentally conscious actions. While kraft tissues, paper cups, wooden salt and pepper shakers were used on the flight, all passengers were served complimentary healthy green tea. Other special measures included environmentally-friendly pillow covers and blankets, which were produced with 100% recycled certificated threads in order to save on water and FSC certified wooden toys gifted to child passengers.

The airline will continue its efforts to lower its carbon emissions with new generation aircrafts added to its already young fleet with an average age of 8.5 years, while adding new cities served with operations using biofuel such as Stockholm, Oslo, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Paris and London.
