Hi Fly Airline, with principal sustainability partner the Mirpuri Foundation, and The Aircraft Performance Company GmbH push the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of in-service aircraft forward – by introducing the new multi-fingered Plug&Fly Retrofit Wingtip Solution TRINITAIR.
- New wingtip TRINITAIR is capable of reducing fuel consumption by up to 2% and on particular applications even more. In aviation for every kg of fuel saved carbon emission is reduced by 3.16 kg.
- Hi Fly will be the first airline in the world to go on a flight with this new technology, supporting the transformation to a greener environment.
- The new climate-saving and greenhouse-gas-emission reducing project will have its maiden test-flight on a Hi Fly A330.
- This pioneering initiative to create sustainable innovation will forever revolutionize the aviation industry.
The new wingtip TRINITAIR is capable of reducing fuel consumption by up to 2% and on particular applications even more than that. In aviation each kg of fuel saved on a flight reduces CO2 emissions by 3.16 kg. This unprecedented equipment will bring airlines not only financial benefits; they will also enable them to strongly reduce their environmental footprint.
This pioneering initiative to create sustainable innovation, that will forever revolutionize the aviation industry, is now on its final phase. The new climate-saving and greenhouse-gas-emission reducing project will have its maiden test-flight on a Hi Fly A330. Hi Fly will be the first airline in the world to go on a flight with this new technology, supporting the transformation to a greener environment.
The new wingtip provides an enhanced aerodynamic solution, assisting aircraft manufacturers and airlines to reduce their CO2 emissions. TRINITAIR was designed by The Aircraft Performance Company GmbH (The APC) as a cost-effective retrofit solution for valuable in-service aircraft. Along with a downtime of less than one day for installation, the new hardware brings performance enhancement, lower engine wear, range extension and payload increase as well as a significant reduction of fuel burn that leads to lower emissions of CO2 and NOX.
TRINITAIR is a joint project for the environment supported by Hi Fly and its principal sustainability partner, the Mirpuri Foundation. Teaming up for a cleaner sky:
The Aircraft Performance Company GmbH specializes in improving aircraft performance and new solutions for greener aviation. The company’s focus is set on design and performance improvements resulting in increased fuel efficiencies of legacy and next generation aircraft, offering turnkey programs that emanate from creativity and curiosity and transform hands-on solutions into a tangible reality. The APC’s first product is the retrofit-able multifinger-wingtip TRINITAIR, a technology that provides an enhanced aerodynamic solution supporting aircraft-manufacturers and airlines in their commitment to reduce CO2 emissions.

The TRINITAIR project goes in line with Hi Fly’s long commitment to sustainability practices. This initiative reflects the company’s intent to fly modern, efficient and environmental-friendly aircraft. Hi Fly is the first single use plastic-free airline in the world and is working actively to become Carbon Neutral by the end of 2022. The EASA and IOSA certified and FAA approved carrier operates a large fleet of Airbus aircraft, Airbus A320, A330 and A340 families, available for wet lease or charter worldwide. The supply of aircraft and crew, maintenance and insurance is Hi Fly’s core business and has been developed with unmatched operational expertise over the last 15 years.

Innovation and science are a part of the Mirpuri Foundation’s DNA. Consequently, the foundation continually invests in initiatives and technologies capable of making a difference in every area it acts in, and the aviation sector is no exception. In a normal day, close to 100.000 flights take off in different directions around the globe. In an average year, close to four billion passengers travel on commercial aircraft, a number that is estimated to double in the next 20 years. Conscious that this is a polluting industry that is necessary for economic development, the Mirpuri Foundation is committed to minimizing its environmental repercussions.
