Boeing and Etihad have announced one of the airline's 787 Dreamliners will serve as a flying laboratory for testing ways of reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

This is part of a growing partnership to advance the sustainable growth of aviation.

"Innovation, productivity and sustainability are core values and objectives of Etihad Airways and of Abu Dhabi," said Tony Douglas, group chief executive of Etihad Aviation Group, at the 2019 Dubai Airshow. "The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a key enabler of all three."

The specially-themed 787 will enter service early next year and operate regular flights in Etihad’s network, while periodically serving as a test bed for assessing environmental sustainability initiatives.

The project builds on Etihad's ample experience with the super-efficient airplane.

"The 787 Dreamliner and its track record of environmental performance makes it the perfect platform to advance our industry's commitment to sustainable growth," said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Etihad Airways to identify more opportunities to improve efficiency across commercial aviation."
