On 27APR, Turkish Airlines debuted its new environmentally-friendly Airbus 321 type TC-JSU tail numbered aircraft with special leaf-themed livery The carrier operated its first flight with the aircraft to Stockholm, using biofuel and other measures as part of its "zero-waste principle."

In addition to providing information on the sustainability impacts of this first flight, the Turkish Airlines also introduced new environmentally-conscious measures. Recycled kraft tissues, paper cups, wooden salt and pepper shakers were used on the flight, and all passengers were served complimentary green tea.

Other special measures included environmentally-friendly pillow covers and blankets, which were produced with 100 per cent recycled certificated threads in order to save on water and FSC certified wooden toys gifted to child passengers, the aircraft said.

Onboard the environmentally-friendly aircraft, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat stated: "As the national flag carrier of Turkiye, our newly designed aircraft is now in the skies to underline the importance of sustainability for us."

"With the biofuel expression on our aircraft, we wish to emphasize the significance of using sustainable aviation fuel as it is one of the biggest hurdles of aviation industry's struggle against carbon emissions. Thus, we are supporting the biofuel manufacturing efforts and aim to increase our flights which use biofuel during their operations."

Turkish Airlines says it will continue its efforts to lower its carbon emissions with new generation aircrafts added to its fleet, while planning to add new cities that are served with operations using biofuel including Stockholm, Oslo, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Paris and London.
