Etihad to Plant a Mangrove Tree for Every Economy Seat

Etihad Airways will plant one mangrove tree on behalf of every guest who books an Economy Space seat, ensuring every "space" seat sold is eventually carbon neutral.

The trees will be planted in locations in Abu Dhabi for each economy space seat purchased on any Etihad Airways flight. Each mangrove planted alone will absorb up to 250kg of CO2 in its lifetime – the same amount produced by an eight-hour flight.

A booking confirmation will be reciebed in 10 day from the email link, guests can track, virtually visit, and see photos and other details of their tree, confirming the carbon offset for their recent travel.

Guests have the option to register their claimed tree so they can easily revisit their tree at a later day. Through the platform's app, Etihad guests can "chat" with their chatbot-enabled tree, while also being able to track every tree with satellite maps and access data, including CO2 consumption metrics, which can be tracked.

Economy Space offers generous legroom and more space to relax. It is available only on Etihad-operated flights, and guests can reserve a seat in Economy Space while booking their ticket or at any time until check in.

This can be booked at etihad.com under "Manage my booking" when checking in online or at the airport.

Etihad Guest Platinum members can reserve a seat in Economy Space for free or save 50% as an Etihad Guest Gold member.

Guests in other cabins can also take part in the Etihad Forest initiative using Etihad Guest Miles in the Reward Shop, while a range of additional options are offered to meet corporate partner requirements and provide bundled-offset options through the Corporate Conscious Choices programme.
