Air Transat won two Mercure awards at the Mercuriades Awards gala, for Large Business of the Year and for Sustainable Development, in recognition of its program for green dismantling of end-of-life aircraft.
The project, completed in 2013, saw two Airbus A310s eco-responsibly and sustainably dismantled, with 87% of the aircrafts' components reclaimed.
The dismantling of the two Air Transat planes was carried out in collaboration with Aerocycle, a company specializing in eco-responsible aircraft dismantling and recycling, in compliance with the international standard established by the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA) and using an environmental management system introduced by Aéroports de Montréal (ADM), with coordination provided by sustainable development consulting firm Eko-Conseil.
Once again, Air Transat has shown itself to be a leader in sustainable development.
