United Wins Eco-Aviation Airline of the Year Gold Award

United has been named the Eco-Aviation ‘Airline of the Year’ Gold Winner by Air Transport World magazine, the top award granted by ATW in its annual Eco-Aviation Awards.

The ‘Eco-Airline of the Year’ award recognises an airline in global commercial aviation for its eco-aviation leadership as demonstrated by consistent and impactful environmental action within the company and in the industry. United was awarded for making its environment policies a priority, actively engaging in climate change and biofuels working groups and initiatives, and for its dedication to a broad set of activities that improve both the airline’s efficiency and the environment in which it operates.

“This is a great honour for United and I am proud of the work that my co-workers do every day to be responsible stewards for the environment,” said Jeff Smisek, Chairman, President and Chief Executive of United. “Our initiatives are paying off as we reduce United’s environmental footprint and work together toward a sustainable future for our company and our industry.”
