Eco aircraft touches down in Glasgow

7 October 2021

As we countdown to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, our team on the ground handled a special eco aircraft this week.

Visitors from around the world came to see the technology of the new Boeing ecoDemonstrator 737 Max 9, which was at the Scottish airport for the Boeing Innovation Forum.

Menzies was an official partner of the event held to promote innovation and sustainability in the aviation industry.

Our ground handling team provided ramp duties and GSE movement, as well as check in duties when the aircraft returned to Seattle.

Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator programme has been running for 10 years and evaluates technologies that could make their way onto in-service jets.
