TAF airline waste management campaign

Flights creates millions of tonnes of passenger waste per year and very little is recycled. The average passenger generates 1.4 kilograms of waste per flight, according to IATA.

TAF is interviewing all European airlines with aim to reduce their single use plastic. We have encouraged the airports to implement water fountains and end the selling of plastic bottles.  San Francisco airport has now banned the plastic bottles with effect from august 20th 2019.

The result of our campaign will be published later this year.
