TUI Join Forces with Boeing and NASA

TUI Group partnered with Boeing and NASA on their ecoDemonstrator 757 programme, an initiative where an aircraft was specifically built to test emerging innovations aimed at reducing carbon emissions and noise in commercial aviation.

In the framework of the project 15 different technologies were trialled, with two of those being used to reduce drag.

After six months of testing and 183 flights the outcome was a rudder 20 percent more efficient and 40 percent less soiling from insects.

The 757 was then dismantled with 90 percent of parts able to be reused or recycled.
