Dry cleaning an Airbus A380 with Emirates

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Emirates is showcasing an environmentally friendly aircraft cleaning technique that enables the airline to save millions of litres of water every year, reports Phil Blizzard in Dubai.

When applied to its fleet of 260 aircraft, Emirates saves over 11 million litres of water every year.

Additionally, the waterless aircraft wash technique ensures planes remains cleaner for longer, reducing the number of times they have to be washed to about three times a year.

This also reduces fuel consumption, as planes accumulate less dirt.
