All Nippon Airways goes green

(Source: Star Alliance) ANA has unveiled its first green-liveried aircraft, reflecting the airline’s commitment to environmental sustainability and lower emissions.
The green livery has been applied to a Bombardier DHC8-Q400 aircraft, which will be used on domestic routes from November 19. The new paint scheme aims to encourage awareness among passengers about ANA’s environmental strategy.
ANA Group is the first Japanese airline to receive the government’s “Eco First” certification, following the introduction of several measures to protect the environment and address climate change. The Bombardier was selected for its superior environmental performance—reduced noise pollution and lower CO2 emissions—in comparison to jet engine equivalents.
