Reply To: Thai Airways launch Demonstration ASPIRE Green FlightBack to Forum
THAI and the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand LTD (AEROTHAI) announce the signing of an “ ASPIRE Flight ” agreement. The agreement aims to promote efficient use of fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emission.
THAI ASPIRE Flight is a demonstration of a “ perfect flight ” on international routes, aiming to save fuel consumption procedures. The demonstration roundtrip flight is from Bangkok to Auckland during 5-8 May.
THAI operated Boeing 777-200 ER, using the aircraft with an engine wash to help reduce fuel consumption by 0.6% and an airframe wash for aerodynamic efficiency.
THAI expects that best practices will decrease fuel consumption around 2% per flight.
