Japan Airlines shows eco

JAPAN AIRLINES is making a clear public demonstration of its commitment to the environment by placing the second of its so-called ‘Eco Jets’ on its London services.  The aircraft concerned is a Boeing 777-300ER in the same distinctive colour scheme as a similar series 200 aircraft used in the Far East.  For more than 15 years, JAL has been implementing a variety of measures designed to reduce and offset the impact its business activities have on the environment – from the introduction of more fuel efficient aircraft to the fitting of specially developed air-sampling equipment on its aircraft to help scientists better understand the causes and effects of global warming.  JAL currently has twice daily services between Heathrow and Tokyo.  www.jal.com
