IATA supports Solar Impulse

IATA is proud to be an Institutional Partner of Solar Impulse – the solar airplane that will fly around the world with no fuel and zero emissions.

Solar Impulse and IATA’s shared vision look towards a zero carbon emission future for air travel. Solar power alone will not be the answer to the environment question. But IATA believes that the innovation and pioneering spirit of Solar Impulse will drive the aviation industry forward.
