Emirates has teamed up with United for Wildlife on new eco-friendly amenity kits that feature eight of the world’s most endangered species and underline the airline’s core environmental sustainability pillar of preserving wildlife and their habitats.
The new Emirates kits highlight the carrier’s commitment to raising awareness about endangered species and preventing illegal wildlife trade through its longstanding partnership with United for Wildlife.
The featured animals are the green sea turtle, African elephant, blue macaw, gorilla, hammerhead shark, lion, pangolin and black rhino.
Emirates actively participates against illegal wildlife trafficking and exploitation as a member of the United for Wildlife Transport Taskforce.
Its freight arm, Emirates SkyCargo, has a complete ban on hunting trophies of elephants, rhinoceros, lions and tigers.
United for Wildlife Co-Chair David Fein said transport operators have a huge role to play in disrupting traffickers’ supply chains.
“The illegal wildlife trade is driving many iconic species around the world towards extinction at an alarming rate,” he said.
“Emirates has consistently demonstrated leadership and commitment in tackling this global threat. We’re delighted to see the new amenity kits and hope passengers find them informative and inspiring.”
Available to Emirates Premium Economy and Economy Class passengers on long-haul flights, the reusable kits contain recycled plastic items such as a toothbrush, socks, eyeshade and earplugs.
Emirates recently announced it will increase capacity on its Sydney-Dubai route from 4 November 2023.
