By introducing paper cups on flights, Croatia Airlines furthers its commitment to sustainable development
Zagreb, 3 June, 2019
As of today, on all Croatia Airlines flights, soft and alcoholic beverages and warm drinks will be served in paper cups. This is just one of the measures through which the company continues to affirm its commitment to sustainable development in different business segments in accordance with current trends and legal regulations in environmental protection.
The use of paper cups will increase the quality of service for passengers and reduce the use of plastic by 26 tonnes on 2,000,000 passengers (last year, Croatia Airlines transported a total of 2.17 million passengers).
It is worth noting that Croatia Airlines has continuously implemented measures related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption during flights. Furthermore, the introduction of wake vortex generators has reduced the noise on Airbus airplanes (three A319 and three A320 aircraft), whereas the new satellite navigation installed in Dash 8-Q400 aircraft now enables greater energy efficiency on flights in that type of aircraft.
