Beginning January 2018, Turkish Airlines, which flies to more countries than any other airline in the world, will completely revamp its selection of inflight toys, now made from all-natural materials. The revamp is in line with the airline’s recognition of the possible harmful effects of plastic on both children and the environment, and its commitment to making every aspect of its operation consistent with its goal of sustainable development and eco-friendly operations.
The new toys, especially designed for Turkish Airlines, are created from cotton and the wooden parts are manufactured according to the sustainability rules set by the Forest Stewardship Council. The toys provide young travelers between ages three and 12 with additional inflight entertainment, while simultaneously introducing them to the concept of endangered species and increasing wildlife awareness. Through play, Turkish Airlines, in conjunction with the World Wildlife Fund of Turkey, hopes to instill an appreciation of animal protection among children—those who will inherit the world and will be responsible for its care.
Turkish Airlines, striving to minimize the adverse impacts of its operations on the environment to the greatest possible extent, and taking measures to combat climate change, is targeting to continue its operations and plan future travels with a strong sense of environmental and social responsibility for our country and our world.
