Once again, Air Europa has been nominated as a finalist in the prestigious Onboard Hospitality Awards 2019. Air Europa’s accolade in the “Best for Sustainability Onboard” category, is for its 100% recyclable water container Aguaencaja, which is offered to Business Class Passengers. The container is made from plant based material and certified as zero CO2 emissions.

The award will be presented at the Onboard Hospitality awards ceremony, taking place in early April. Air Europa started its collaboration with Aguaencaja last October with the aim of asserting a commitment to the environment with sustainability a key priority.

We are competing against eight other airlines, and the nomination alone, according to Sandra Lenis, Air Europa’s Product and Client Director “already marks the recognition of Air Europa’s environmental policy and further projects contributing to overall sustainability”.

By offering this eco-friendly alternative to its passengers, Air Europa is also contributing to Aguaencaja’s “Plant for the planet” initiative: Air Europa passengers are encouraged to upload photos of the water container on social media with the hashtag “#PlantatuCaja” (“plant your box”), and for every post the brand will plant a tree.

Multiple measures have also been taken in order to reduce our plastic consumption on board and reduce our ecological footprint. For instance, in Business Class, all meals come with metal cutlery, drinks are served in glassware, and linens are reusable. In addition, further studies are being carried out in order to implement additional measures to advance the airline’s commitment to the environment.

Air Europa’s Business Class Amenity Kit by Kaelis, has also been nominated as a finalist for the “Best On-Board Amenities in Business Class”.
