Since 2008, we've been involved with tree-planting activities in six areas in Hokkaido where we offer flights (Chitose, Asahikawa, Hakodate, Memanbetsu, Obihiro, and Kushiro) together with the "Hokkaido Company Reforestation" project in Hokkaido to conserve its bountiful environment. In addition to tree-planting, we've also been performing upkeep with the trees we've planted to the present and offering continuous care in raising our trees (pruning, thinning, additional planting, and more) since 2019.

  • Operation initiatives
    A fine coating of grime accumulates inside aircraft engines over time as they are used, reducing their combustion efficiency, so our method for reducing fuel consumption is to restore combustion efficiency by rinsing out engines with water. We also strive to improve efficiency premised on safe aircraft operations and reduce CO2 emissions by selecting routes and altitudes with better fuel efficiency as well as performing gradual descents -- techniques which enable us to reduce our fuel consumption.
  • In-flight initiatives
    As a means of reducing the amount of plastic materials we use, we have changed the muddlers used with our in-flight drink service from plastic to paper construction. We also give out original stickers to customers declining a bag for their in-flight shopping product purchases. AIRDO aims to reduce the amount of disposable plastics used onboard through our passengers' understanding of and cooperation with our eco-friendly initiatives.
