“The partnership will allow Amadeus, ATS Travel and Olive Gaea to work closely together and offer clients offsetting opportunities and inspire sustainable living. The collaboration saw all parties pledging to develop a more sustainable future with participants planting mangroves at the local Al Zohra mangrove ecosystem. Participants were briefed on the sustainability project and taken on a Kayak tour to the mangrove plantation area with reusable water bottles and eco-friendly utilities. We invited our corporate clients and UAE National airlines representatives to join the event and support the cause.”

Mr. Ernesto Sanchez Beaumont, Managing Director, Amadeus Gulf said that “This partnership supports our approach to transforming business operations, helping customers and driving the industry toward a more sustainable future. Enabling our customers to engage in green initiatives, such as this one from ATS Travel and Olive Gaea, and working with the global travel community on sustainability reflects our commitment to being at the forefront of change.”

“We are delighted to partner with ATS Travel’s sustainability initiative ‘ATS Go Green’ supported by Amadeus. With local and global organizations racing against time to address climate change and reach Net Zero Carbon targets, we are pleased to play our part and help them take climate action. Not only will they minimize their environmental impact and support new plantation activities, but they will also empower their clients with innovative and sound sustainability tools,” said Mr. Vivek Tripathi, Founder and CEO of Olive Gaea.
