A mangrove for every Economy Space seat

24 August 2022, 02:49 PM


We’re determined to do our part for the world and help to protect the planet. That’s why we’ve launched the Etihad Mangrove Forest, and committed to planting a mangrove for every Economy Space seat booked on our flights.


Each mangrove planted alone will absorb up to 250kg of CO2 in its lifetime – the same amount produced by an eight-hour flight.


So the next time you book an extra legroom seat in Economy Space for your customer, they’ll be able to stretch out and feel good knowing they’re doing their bit for the environment. 


How does it work?

Simply book an extra legroom seat in Economy Space and we’ll plant a mangrove on your customer’s behalf.



Within 10 days of flying, your customer will receive an email from us with a link to their gifted mangrove. 


Using the link, they can track their tree, its location and growth. They can even chat with it for the next 10 years.

Why mangroves?


Mangroves are a habitat for birds and underwater wildlife; they improve water quality and provide flood protection. 


One mangrove absorbs 12.3kg of CO2 in just 12 months and 250kg over its lifetime


Over its lifetime, a mangrove absorbs the same amount of CO2 as produced by an eight-hour flight.
