Air India to observe ‘No Cars Day’ for its employees and ‘No Plastics Day’ in the aircraft they fly to celebrate World Environment Day on June 5.

Airline employees are to leave their cars at home and use public transport system on June 5. Besides, Air Indians will also observe a ‘No Plastics Day’ by not only desisting to use plastic bags which pose health and environment hazards but also dissuade others from using such bags.

Air India’s theme this year is ‘Swachh Bharat is a Swasth Bharat’, in sync with Prime Minister’s vision for “Swachh Bharat”- A Clean India.

Air India CMD Rohit Nandan has also appealed to all Air Indians to "join hands and switch off non-essential lights in our buildings, offices and homes between 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm to observe ‘Earth Hour’, to support the unique movement of energy conservation to save the Earth. Let us all hold our hands and move forward in the right direction to conserve nature and pass on the benefits to our next generation."
