The Mirpuri Foundation “Save the Coral Reefs” aircraft proudly operated the first commercial service of an Airbus A380 to this beautiful  island in the Indian Ocean, attracting a lot of visitors and enthusiasts to the Roland Garros Airport.

Hi Fly A380 arrived today at Reunion Island, flying from Paris. The Mirpuri Foundation campaign is now raising awareness on Coral Reefs at this France region, aiming to preserve this underwater tropical paradise, with a rich biodiversity, fauna and flora in its 9 km of reef environment. 

If no action is taken, these beautiful ecosystems will disappear by 2050. With 50% of the world’s corals already gone, action needs to be taken immediately and awareness is the first step.

Hi Fly, an airline operating worldwide as wet leasing specialist, supported Mirpuri Foundation’s idea to carry the message across the five continents. The chosen aircraft was an Airbus A380-800, which is now painted on both sides, one representing a pristine ocean with colorful and healthy marine life and the other displaying destroyed corals. The Airbus A380 also exhibits a strong statement that clearly illustrates the importance of the cause and the urgency to act and inspire the change of collective behaviors.

The Mirpuri Foundation aims to lead by example, taking the problem worldwide and engaging individuals, governments and organizations into generating the right solutions to save our planet.
