How to wash an A380 without water | World Environment Day | Emirates

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Emirates is showcasing an environmentally friendly aircraft cleaning technique that has enabled the airline to save millions of litres of water every year.

Since early 2016 Emirates has been using an aircraft ‘drywash’ technique to clean its fleet of over 250 aircraft.

As indicated by the name, little or no water is involved in cleaning the aircraft, which is in contrast to conventional methods of aircraft cleaning which typically use thousands of litres of water per wash.
