Etihad Airways aircraft operations rated as one of cleanest and quietest by LHR

Posted 21 June 2017 · Add Comment

Etihad Airways has been given a top rating by London's Heathrow Airport for its emissions and night-time noise performance during the first three months of 2017.

The “Fly Quiet and Clean” League Table, the first of its kind to be produced by the airport, placed the UAE’s national airline among the top carriers for operating the cleanest and quietest fleets.

The top rating recognition is the result of a programme of disciplined flying by Etihad Airways’ Operations which strictly manages airport approaches and departures, as well as adhering to air traffic control instructions and procedures.

Rick Allen, senior vice president operations at Etihad Airways, said: “In addition to safety, our pilots are trained to focus on efficient flying, especially into busy airports like Heathrow. So it is very pleasing to be placed at the top of the first Fly Quiet and Clean table.

“This attention to detail brings great benefits in terms of lowering fuel usage and reducing noise. We will continue to work closely with the airport authorities and aim to stay at the top of the league of airlines operating into Heathrow.”
