Boeing and Etihad’s ecoDemonstrator


An Etihad Airways B787-10 Dreamliner has commenced flight testing for Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator programme. The fuselage and cabin have been fitted with equipment designed to drive innovations that will enhance safety and reduce CO2 emissions and noise.

Among the technologies on trial is a handheld ultraviolet light wand, which will be tested to determine its effectiveness in disinfecting flight decks and cabins, as part of Boeing’s Confident Travel Initiative to address Covid-19.
