Emirates Introduces Comfy Plastic-Bottle Blankets


Emirates has introduced new sustainable environmentally-friendly blankets made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, designed in partnership with Buzz.


The soft and warm blankets are made using ecoTHREAD™ patented technology and are already available in Economy Class on all Emirates' long-haul flights.


Each Emirates ecoTHREAD™ blanket is made from 28 recycled plastic bottles. The bottles are recycled into plastic chips before being turned into yarn, creating a polar fleece material. The fine thread is then woven into soft blankets.

By the end of 2019, Emirates ecoTHREAD™ blankets would have rescued 88 million plastic bottles from landfills– equivalent to the weight of 44 A380 aircraft.


ecoTHREAD™ is certified with the Intertek Green Leaf Mark by third party testing and certification body Intertek, independently verified to use 100% recycled materials.


Emirates recently introduced a plush, faux sheep-skin blanket in First Class and soft duvets in Business Class.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
