President Paulo Mirpuri was today the guest speaker for the Aviation Club UK, in London, and delivered a speech on Hi Fly success history and the innovative sustainability initiatives it is bringing to the aviation industry, in partnership with the Mirpuri Foundation.

For its part, Hi Fly airlines has already committed to flying its own flights free of single-use plastic items by the end of this year (2019).
