Emirates to conduct longest eco-friendly journey on Dec 15 to San Francisco

Dubai-based airlines, Emirates will go for a new fuel-saving initiative as it conducts the longest green journey on December 15 with its Dubai-San Francisco flight. Emirates said it worked closely with government agencies in Dubai, Russia, Iceland, Canada, the United States and other countries to plot what it called the 'Environment Flight'.

The flight has been described as "the most environmentally-sophisticated route and trip possible to help save an estimated 2,000 gallons of fuel and 30,000 pounds of carbon emissions on the 16-hour non-stop service".

The airline will use the new Boeing 777-200LR to service the San Francisco-Dubai route as part of the airline's multi-billion dollar investment in economic and environmental efficiencies. The programme will represent the world's first cross-polar green flight, Emirates said in a statement. The inaugural green flight will demonstrate multiple fuel and emission-saving measures.
