easyJet, with 50m passengers annually and close on 200 aircraft, is now Britain’s largest airline. It is also becoming the most forward thinking (readers may recall the “ecoJet” of June 2007 – said to be still alive).
easyJet’s latest initiative is lightweight, thin nanotechnology polymer coating. It works by reducing build up of debris and reduces drag across the surface of the aircraft thus reducing the fuel bill and is estimated could save 1-2% annually equating to a £14m reduction in fuel costs.
Eight aircraft have been painted with the weight added an astonishing 113g (4oz). The idea has already been used by US Military. The experiment will last for 12 months and if successful easyJet will apply the paint to its whole fleet. www.easyJet.com
